It was an intentional (though unjustified) oversight. Thanks for
working on this.

Interesting. Does your script detect that the --creation-factor option
added by patch 13/14 [1] also lacks a test? (I'm not necessarily
suggesting adding a test at the moment. Even Dscho's git-range-diff
series doesn't have a test for "creation factor", so it wouldn't
necessarily make sense to add a test only for the git-format-patch
case. Instead, we'd want, at some point, to add tests covering both
git-range-diff and git-format-patch.)
