Doesn't desc point into and walks over the data we read from the
tree object directly?

We try to keep (tree|commit)->buffer intact and that is done pretty
deliberately.  While you are walking a tree or parsing a commit,
somebody else, perhaps called indirectly by a helper function you
call, may call lookup_object() for the same object, get the copy
that has already been read and start using it.  This kind of change
will introduce bugs that are hard to debug unless it is done very
carefully (e.g. starting from making tree.buffer into a const pointer
and propagating constness throughout the system), which might not be
worth the pain.
