No, it isn't. I quote:
I sometimes run "git reset" during a merge to only reset the index
and then examine the changes introduced by the merge. With your
changes, someone doing so would abort the merge and discard the
merge resolution. I very rarely do this, but even rarely, I
wouldn't like Git to start droping data silently for me ;-).
You should not make statements like "I have yet to see an actual use
case of bad behavior in this discussion" when you actually mean "I have
not yet seen anything I would be interested in doing myself".
