At least in Git the "central repo" is purely a policy question, so
yes, you can remove it from there too. Or rather edit the commit that
had the typo in it.

But the real benefit is that you can commit pretty freely on-the-go,
and then just create the changeset you want others to see. This alone
will reduce the amount of "oops"-commits. This of course is available
through git-svn already.

Even if it's history nobody will ever care about or even want to see?
