The use-case story before this conclusion only mentioned "commit"
that concluded the multi-step cherry-pick/revert, and never talked
about "reset", which made my eyebrows to rise.

As a part of "reset", we have already been removing CHERRY_PICK_HEAD
and REVERT_HEAD, so "git reset" during a conflicted "cherry-pick"
for example is already destructive and the user can no longer get
back to continuing the cherry-pick anyway after running it, even
without this patch.  So from that point of view, it does make sense
to remove the other sequencer states at the same time.

Thanks.
