Yes, exactly. I think you could probably define some sensible responses
there. E.g., consider this history:

  commit() { echo $1 >$1 && git add $1 && git commit -m $1; }
  commit base
  commit left
  git checkout -b side HEAD^
  commit right

which looks like this:

  $ git log --graph --oneline --all
  * e0b7b94 (master) left
  | * 2a4163a (HEAD -> side) right
  |/  
  * 8d8a806 base

That "base" commit is sort of in the same boat: it's reachable from
either side. By default we don't count it at all:

  $ git rev-list --count --left-right master...side
  1	1

but we do know about it as a boundary commit, and you could ask for it
to be counted on the right:

  $ git rev-list --boundary --left-right master...side
  <e0b7b9473efa49db3c6bf4ceab587f22d1935f28
  >2a4163a0a9bbcb837af2ac2e80e17120798f863a
  -8d8a806249905f101b5ac3f1eb74fa426f90ddf2

  $ git rev-list --count --boundary --left-right master...side
  2	1

So probably it would be sensible to do the same for the objects.
Anything reachable from both is a "boundary" object. But I don't think
we extend the left-right marking to --objects at all now:

  $ git rev-list --boundary --left-right --objects master...side
  <e0b7b9473efa49db3c6bf4ceab587f22d1935f28
  >2a4163a0a9bbcb837af2ac2e80e17120798f863a
  -8d8a806249905f101b5ac3f1eb74fa426f90ddf2
  f48654b5fe8de485e4622598842ca14b04b62c0a
  45cf141ba67d59203f02a54f03162f3fcef57830 left
  4540e3db9d99d518601ecadb81f7d55d55855033
  c376d892e8b105bd712d06ec5162b5f31ce949c3 right

Nor do we even seem to dig into the boundary objects.

So there would need to be more infrastructure in the traversal itself to
be able to do this right, I think. I'm happy to wait until somebody
demonstrates a real use for it. :)
