After "git checkout v1.3.0", it is reasonable to expect that you can
tell what you checked out and what state you are in.  If you then
made a few commits or resetted to some other commit, it is debatable
if "detached from v1.3.0" is useful or the subtle difference between
"detached at" vs "detached from" is confusing.

But what does it have to do with rebase polluting the reflog?
