Probably just like bzr already went through several repository formats
and allowed easy upgrades (just like Subversion repository format
changed and it didn't cause any problem for users).  I don't think
there is a problem here.

And also, data would be available in native git format on lots of
computers, and could always be pushed to a vanilla git server.
