I think you are going in circles.  If you start from "textconv is
about mangling blob contents", then it would look natural to you
that "show <blob>", "diff A B", and "grep <pattern> <blob>" would
all first mangle the blob contents using textconv and then work on

But diff.<driver>.textconv is to mangle blob contents in preparation
for comparing with another.

That is why you explicitly ask "cat-file --textconv" to use the same
mangling even when you are not comparing it with anything else.
