This is the typical practice, including all the intermediate experiments or false starts in experimental. I sympathize with wanting to clean up some of that, but as a project we generally have decided to live with that. Most users don't read the full changelog anyway (user-visible notes should be in NEWS instead, which are shown to more people via apt-listchanges), and removing versions from the history has bad effects on the bug-tracking system, historical archives, etc. -- Russ Allbery (r...@debian.org) <https://www.eyrie.org/~eagle/>
