An alternate POV would be that it would be a flat death knell for bzr

"Why would we use bzr, when any nut who wants to use it can deal with
whatever we choose anyway?"

It may make it a neat _client_, but if you had a project with a
hundred bzr developers and 5 git developers, and bzr could deal with
git but git couldn't with bzr, which VCS would make sense to choose?
Windows compatibility worked out well for OS/2 on the desktop, didn't
