Right. That's perfectly acceptable -- and that's the reason why I think
it's also fine to keep the timezone and the rename information in there
too. If we were being _really_ anal about auxiliary information being
separate, we'd stick it in a separate blob object and merely refer to it
from the commit object. I don't think there's really any call to take it
that far, though.
