I agree with you here.

Considering it's only the core team that merges, this should be our
internal requirements. However, I'm also in favor of making this not
only a rule, but configured in the Github settings so it's the right
thing by default.

(Some people object to rebase because it changes the history to a
history that didn't actually exist. That's a fair argument.)
