That would need to change the whole architecture, because right now
the remote helpers are agnostic of Git SHA-1s.

It's skipped, because it's already converted.

No, it doesn't. If the remote-helper fails gracefully, the bzr
revisions are converted and stored in the bzr repo, even if they were
not pushed to the remote. So it's OK if fast-export never exports them
again; we already have them.
