FWIW this is the only thing I've used it for. I do this occasionally and
used to do this manually with format-patch + "perl -pe" before or
similar when I needed to merge some repositories together, and then some
other times I was less stupid and manually started doing something
similar to what subtree is doing with a "move everything" commit just
before the merge of the two histories.

Pretty clear it's garbage data, unless we're to believe that the
relative interest of submodules in the US, Germany and Sweden is 51, 64
& 84, but 75, 100 and 0 for subtree.
