Git decided that usability wouldn't be first priority. 
Hg decided that changing history wouldn't be first priority. 

Neither decided, that one of them wouldn't ever be tackled. 

Having to learn and use non-intuitive commands isn't what software should 
impose on me.

There are definitely times when you'll want to change history. 

I don't think it's something I need to do often, though, so having simple 
scripts which do it isn't a necessary feature for me. 

You can change history in Mercurial if you need to, but it isn't as quick as 
rebasing in git.
