It seems to me the general gist of what you are saying is that if
everyone follows the steps you describe, rewriting history should not be
a problem (please correct me if I'm wrong). I'm not challenging that,
I'm saying that this is not particularly the way people and projects I
know of work, me included at a certain point in time. Until everyone and
every tool using the git repository is reached and adjusted to your
needs I don't see how you can consider it a viable option, unless your
point of view is that disrupting the work of others than don't do as you
think should be done is acceptable.

My opinion on whether doing something constitutes misbehavior is
entirely subjective.
