Well timestamp chronology isn't so important since git keep the
commits in the order of the arriving. Imo removing the power of rebase
is like using svn but with better merging possibilities.

Having the possibility to merge some commits from branches in one
atomic commit is really good if you want to make sure that all commits
pass the tests, while failures can be accepted in branches. Indeed in
branches you can use commit as  a way to show WIP, which should be
unacceptable in master or productions branches.
