The problem is that between "git rm" and "git mv", if we default "git
cp" to mean "cherry-pick" there could easily be user confusion.
I'm not sure that cherry-pick is used that often it really needs a two
character shortcut. Maybe just "git pick"?
Personally, "git branch" and "git checkout" are finger macros that I
type very quickly, so creating two character alias probably wouldn't
save me that much time. But I do appreicate that there are folks for
which such aliases might be useful.
