For me the most important thing is that the lack of staging area leads
on commits that have no clear goal, people just commit everything they
have changed at some point, as a sort of checkpoint.

Although lots of people still do this with git currently, they don't
even have the possibility[1] to improve on this.

This makes history and features like git bisect less useful.

[1] At most they can specify the files they want to commit, but this is
still a very crude way to group together changes.
