Do you mean that "git merge" should be aware of what changes you have

It isn't, and that's deliberate

That said, when today's "git merge" fails to resolve conflicts, it's
easily possible that we could do better at resolving the merge by
walking through both sides and understanding what happened.

It would help if cherry-pick history where recorded somewhere (beyond
the reflog)...

Cherry-picks should record two parents, like merges.

(Of course, it does no good to know about an unreachable parent, when
a commit with two parents is pushed to a repo that doesn't have one of
those parents, which can happen when topic branches aren't pushed

There was (long time ago) a long thread about idea of adding some
kind of 'weak' references (links), 'weakparent' that can be automatically used by Git but do not pollute the commit message,
and do not affect reachability calculations.  Ultimately it went
nowhere (as you can see) - there were many problems.

For example: how it would work for reverts and rebases?
