why skip the merge commits?

in many cases the merges involve a significant amount of effort and skill to do right. I'm curious why they were stripped out of the results?
If I understand git correctly a merge commit will only happen when there's something interesting. if linus pulls from a subsystem tree that is based directly on his latest version it will do a fast-forward, not a merge.
