One of the nice features of GitHub is that it provides a download link to grab tarballs for any specific version.  These are easy to se with other workflows (for example, the FreeBSD ports collection has infrastructure for grabbing a release and building it).  It would be a shame if you needed a full git clone to get the revision information, as that would mean that anyone who built from a tarball would lose it.
