Of course it helps. Do you imply that if the bug was introduced by a
merged revision it will go unnoticed? Bisecting mainline will pinpoint
which merge revision introduced the problem. Then, if the merged history
is long enough, the merged branch is recreated and bisect executed
there. Maybe not as convenient as doing it on a single pass, but not so
annoying to justify extending the strict mainline commit requirements to
private branches.
