I think it would be fine if there was an option to force such a behaviour, but 
I think the default should be not to do that. diffoscope should show (all) 
differences, not hide some, to make some others more visibe… at least not by 

IOW: if your "container" (the filesystem) is underministic, diffoscope should 
not try to hide this (by default).
