I'm exploring them as a way to speed up our merge process and provide better
auditing. No decision yet.

That's not true. A merge commit links to the original author history. Github just
displays the delta to be friendly. Git annotate also will show the original author sha1
and not the merge sha1.
Yes that is true, your statement not mine ;-)
In that case that is the only part I was worried about, the history in
the actual repository is maintained exactly as it is today.
