Yes, and let the experimentors to override when they are trying to
invent a new object type, finished a reader but not a writer (that
is why they are exprimenting with hash-object) nor updated fsck,
with an explicit command line option to "hash-objects".
Then we do not have to say "-w by default can create an invalid
object" in its documentation. In a sense, allowing to create any
garbage (by the definition of then-current fsck and the rest of the
Git) is the raison d'etre of the command.
