Perhaps we want to upstream this, together with a new "--clean"
option for git hash-object?

And after writing all of the above, I noticed that hash-object by
default uses the clean machinery and that can be turned off by
giving the "--no-filters" option.  The reason why the option is not
called "--no-clean" is because it is not just about the clean filter
but is about using the entirety of convert_to_git() filter chain.

We probably should teach "hash-objects" to take "--filters" for

And then your "git cat-file" patch can be upstreamed with the option
renamed to (or with an additional synonym) "--filters", which would
make things consistent.
