Sorry, I confused myself.

Yes, I do mind that the "origin" thing in the meta history to pin
the old commit whose contents were cherry picked to create a new
commit, which is separate from the old commit that was rewritten to
create a new commit.  The latter (i.e. the old one) I do not mind to
get retrieved when such a meta commit is fetched, and all of us of
course would want the new one, too (which is the whole point of
adding the meta commit to help other commits built on the old one
migrate to the new one).  But I simply do not see the point of
having to drag the history leading to "origin", and that is why I am
moderately against recording "the change in this came from that
commit via cherry-pick" in a meta commit.
