A Revolver Remaster is a tough sell for fans because the album sounds so perfect, i mean its absolute perfection. Sgt Pepper , The Beatles, Let It Be all have controversial song choices or exclusions as well as multitrack tapes that can be re-applied with modern technology. I can’t get into the mind of Giles, but why would you want to mess with a recording so perfect? The perfect melding of technological and musical innovation that only George Martin could put his finger on the controls.
Edit: When i say “re apply with modern technology” I mean there was a huge opportunity during the Pepper remasters to take what everybody is so impressed by, the fact that they recorded it on a 4 track, and mixed it as if there was no track limit.
We need a rerelease with some session tracks though
Could skip the remaster (tho it should be remix as that’s what the others were) and give us the sessions. I’m sure I could cope if we got two extra discs of outtakes instead of mono and stereo remixes.

I’d much rather hear session tracks than another remaster personally.
