If you use packs (as everybody does), corrupted writes in
the pack could destroy the history too (but they probably use transactions
and checks like hg to detect it).
No, my understanding is that packs are write-once just like other objects. (So you have to pack loose objects every now and then to keep performance from degrading.)
