git isn't a content type, it's a protocol. git over HTTP or git over SSH
is a protocol in its own right, distinct from these base protocols, in
the same sense that SSH lives on top of TCP which lives on top of IP
which is transmitted to your computer over ethernet or 802.11. It's
turtles all the way down.

At worst I would call this a happy coincidence. We have this convenient
universal format at our disposal, and we would be wise to take advantage
of it. Rejecting it on the premise that we never wanted to have it
doesn't make sense when we consider that (1) we do have it and (2) it
can be of good use to us.
