Well, can't get much shorter than that! :-)

What I mean is:
As I understand it (possibly incorrectly), we haven't put this
functionality into core because we deem it to be of niche interest, and
not important for the majority of repositories.

Now, if we consider ourselves to be an example of a typical project
using Subversion source control (do we? I'd tend to assume we do), then
if we are interested in log canonicalization, that conflicts with the
supposition that log canonicalization is of niche interest.
