To be honest, I never used bzrmerge.el the few times that I merged, and I doubt whether anybody noticed. As long as the result was right, and there was some indication in the commit log / ChangeLog that it was a merge, people who care can figure it out.

More generally, I sense that there's a tension here between having the repository reflect the actual history of changes, warts and all, and having the repository reflect the history of changes in a nice tidy organized way. Having done a fair bit of software archeology myself I must say that I far prefer the former. (Plus, it's less work for the non-archeologists....)
