Then you have back the problem with branches, since the changes
in the region will not tell you whether the change was merged or
backported etc.

Anyway, I don't really understand the point you are trying to make.  If you
are saying that ChangeLogs are _never_ useful in these situations,
then that's a strangely extremist view, and my experience is very far
from that.
