There's been multiple discussions of this.  The issue is that commit IDs
only mean something in specific trees and go bad if someone rebases,
and they aren't legibile by humans (so even if the commit is in
something like Linus' tree the reader still needs a git repository to
figure out what changes are being talked about).
