So this is actually a concern on a particular tool.

Leaving aside that Phabricator seems to be owned/maintained by Facebook Inc. (what alone may cause significant, though irrational, veto...) this is sth. that needed to be accounted.

How much of a problem it is is imo. atm out of scope, but eg. it would be less a problem on a fork/pullrequest driven workflow (esp. if a smart git hook would eg. support a "PULLTHIS!" keyword) but pretty much a showstopper for a RB/gerrit like approach.

is an acceptable answer to such concerns.

I'd say "no" (because php /is/ uncommon on client systems...) - but there's also phc which *might* cure this particular problem for Phabricator.
