Or 'tree reference revision', shortened somehow.

'tree-id' implies the entirely wrong thing to me, IMO, since using
'id' in conjunction with 'tree' makes me think of a unique identifier
for that tree, when it's in fact just the 'revision ID'.

Here, omitting 'ID' ('tree-revision') makes more sense to me than
omitting 'revision' ('tree-id'), even if the former has the misleading
aspects mentioned by Aaron.
