    Nick, the problem you have in seeing or understanding why we want a history panel is because you see through your own eyes and what may work well for you, but everyone is different, especially creative people, because we don't process our thoughts or ideas the same.

    I'm not speaking for anyone else, but the reason why versioning is not sufficient for me is it is totally different than a history panel, I don't create a version with every action I take in a file. Could you imagine a new version every time you changed the color, added a path, erased, deleted a layer, etc, etc. We would have thousands of versions.

    The reason why I personally want a history panel is often I want to quickly compared current changes I made in the design to how I had them before and the time it would waste to repeatedly hit "CMD+Shift+Z" is not a an efficient way to use my time. Could you image the time I would waste if there were 30 or 40 actions that I needed to go back to view something?

    This feature has been being requested for years, seems like there are a bunch of blowhards in the Illustrator development team and user community that thinks everyone thinks like them and since they find no use for it, then we shouldn't

    Many of like the ability to go back and forth real quickly so we can to compare the differences and see what we like better, and don't want to use the undo shortcut 20 times just to get back to a specific point. The funny thing is this feature would be easy for them to add and those that don't want it in their panels don't have to add it.
