Which is what actually will get committed and thus permanently recorded.
So it makes sense to get the structure as well as the result of a patch
series open to review.

If you feel you want to review a single humongous patch, make a separate
review branch and pick the whole of the detailed branch into it with git
checkout -p.

As an example, how would the dev/syntax branch look when submitted
uncompressed for review?

That's pretty much a real-life example.  And what happens with existing
comments when one restructures/rebases a branch?
