From my point of view the commit list is useful in second use case that
you mentioned above. A specially when compared branches were based on
different commits, in this case you can easily see what changes were made
in both branches and changes introduced by given commit are easily
accessible. If you would like to see what were changed overall, the only
thing you need to do is to switch display mode from "Git Change Set" into

The only thing that we don't have implemented in current sync view is
support for context menu operations like stage, commit, rebase and so on.
