Is there some way to control its usage?

As far as I know, the only control is to ignore all replacements, by using git's --no-replace-objects option or setting the GIT_NO_REPLACE_OBJECTS environment variable.

As I understand it, 'git replace' was motivated by the need to do fancier things, e.g., link a repository with another old repository. It is indeed a powerful mechanism.
