But if you need to fix up an already committed commit, you either make
a new commit, which will break (ii), or you rebase, which will break
anyone else working on a clone of your repository and break (i).

simple, don't care about distributed workflow or keeping full history,
there's no need for TopGit complexity. But sometimes you *do* care.
