Sorry, but I do not understand the motivation I can read from these
three lines well enough to say that such a change makes any sense.

It somewhat sounds similar to adding a "--long" option to "git show"
so that "git show --long v1.9.0" will act as if it were running a
"git log v1.9.0".  Yes, you can add any option to tell a command to
do something that is usually considered to be a task for some other
command, but does it even make sense to do so in the first place?
