In my experience, few git users are expert enough to solve all the problems mentioned in this thread on their own, without a lot of head-scratching or consulting friends etc. However, most non-expert Git users will want to maintain the distinction between committing and pushing, as this distinction is basic to Git and is typically preferred. If VC by default conflated committing with pushing, I expect that would cause more problems than it'd cure, even among non-experts.
