It's true that not all of the parent hashes could be identical.

dgit imports orig tarballs in a way that is supposed to produce a
stable commit hash for each tarball, so that different revisions of
the same upstream version have the upstream as a common ancestor.

Does Nish's importer try to generate a fast-forwarding upstream
branch ?  If not then part of the imported commit structure could be
the same.
