Discrepancy betewen Ec live edits and 'reverted' tag count

Is the 'live edit count' displayed by the ec tool working properly? If I look at the contribution history of user Caustic3 for example, a page search for the string 'Reverted' yields 42 occurrences (out of 112 total edits). However, the ec tool shows "100% live / 0% deleted". It's not like the "deleted" figure is pegged at zero; running it against my username shows 417 deleted edits. Why the discrepancy?

Deleted edits refers to edits to pages that have been deleted. These edits are visible to admins at Special:DeletedContributions. Reverted edits are considered "live" in the sense they haven't been deleted (they're visible at Special:Contributions). It's of course possible and likely that the content introduced with reverted edits are no longer visible on the page, though.

More info at XTools/Edit Counter#Deleted edits. I've added a note about reverted edits.
