When the community votes to either merge or not to merge down the road, it won't be far
enough in the future that losing the git history will be catastrophic. There won't
even be a release for the Kubernetes solution at that point. Plus it's still up in
the air whether the history gets lost at all because it's not a guarantee the community
votes to merge it.
