Hmm. I think the current thinking so far is that it is harmful to
engrave that information in the commit object, exactly for the
reason you stated upfront: these names are local in the repository
the commit was created, and do not have any global meaning.

No, no, and no, not because it is not just useful enough but it may
be actively harmful.
