Then one can just do C-x v l ... 
The reason I found your idea to show a single entry interesting: with
the limiting of C-x v l output that we do now by default, you can ask
for a log in vc-annotate and not get it if the log entry is old enough.
It's rather nice to see exactly the entry you asked for.

So what should we do?
