I'm pretty sure I do.

A parameter to `changes' overrides the default behavior which is to 
use the default tree package-version and the latest log entry in that.

Both behaviors are desirable, of course -- and I agree the
inconsistency with `get' et al. is thought provoking.

But your proposed change preserves only one of the two behaviors.
