I'd agree with you, but a friend of mine recently surprised me by
talking about converting GIFs to JPEGs while retaining history (he
wanted "svn mv" to work having already moved the file). That's weird
because the delta is meaningless, but you still want the log to travel
from the JPEG to the GIF.

In a similar vein, someone might convert a Word file to a Latex file as
part of a copy operation.
