Once again, at the risk of repeating myself, the reason HEAD is at issue 
is that HEAD today is not HEAD in 1 year, and when looking at old 
documents, something referring to HEAD is referring to what is 
essentially some unknown codebase.

So it's "just fine" if and only if this argument doesn't matter to you.
