Do you honestly believe post-commit removal is as easy, and as
inoffensive, as a good pre-commit discussion that prevents inclusion in
the first place? Is it *really* preferable to have new features showing
up, being used, being discussed for a day or three, then being removed?
A commit log full of "X added", "X removed", "Y added", "Y removed" is
no good. And in case you want to say "well, it wouldn't happen too
often," if it wouldn't then discussing those cases beforehand wouldn't
stop them from getting in in the first place too often either.
