Yeah, OK. But you're forced to treat all the work you do offline as
one big lump expressed by one big patch, and you don't get the log
messages on your local commits automatically propagated up to the main
repo along with the patch.

These, to me, are bigger issues than copies or moves. I agree that
those are rare.
