You're missing the point.  Once you've done that, and committed, the
log of that revision cannot be changed.  That means that users of bzr
must do some fancy footwork to ensure that the logs that are pushed
are appropriate, or they must wait until the patch has been approved
*including* ChangeLog to commit and push, or they need to pollute the
history with revisions that simply fix up the ChangeLog.

For people who use branches even for trivial one-commit work, the
footwork needed is not at all fancy.  For people who commit in a bound
branch, it's highly discouraged, for the same reason rebasing public
branches is discouraged -- the only option is a new commit that does
nothing except fix the log.
