I doubt that would be workable.

I was suggesting deliberately keeping the hash the same, but allowing
the thing refered to by it to be something other than the contents.
(It would need to be something special, otherwise you'd end up
regarding it as corruption since the hashes wouldn't work.)

So all repositories would have an object addressible by a specific
hash, but only in some of those would it be the original file.
