Why is that a bad thing? Default output format should not change
(much) from version to version, or from machine to machine (because of
different ~/.gitconfig) for that matter. I don't want to type "git
log" on somebody else's machine and have a big surprise. You _can_
customize output but that should be explicit.

If you want good defaults, that's what aliases are for. I personally
rarely type "git log". I have "l", "lp", "l1"  and other aliases for
my everyday use.
