Developers come and go. Your argument is temporally flawed. A
developer might start working on the tree, read everything during a
merge window, and not catch one of Linus' rebase rants prior to
committing a rebase felony of their own.

Besides, I don't think this rule of yours is all that universal. If
Linus is off on a thread about arm64 device tree brokenness and someone
does a rebase and he rants about it, I'm very likely to miss that rant.
I read what I reasonably deem to be relevant to me and my work, or
sometimes additional stuff that just jumps out at me. But I never
learned to speed read so I don't even try to read it all and wouldn't
agree to a rule that says I have to.
