Actually --rebase is certainly going to cause some issues even for those 
familiar with git, especially while resolving conflicts - as while doing 
rebase, locally commited changes are now marked as "remote" - which certainly 
is going to be misleading in non-trivial conflicts.
As you know it's as well pretty dangerous operation as it *rewrites* git 
history. On the other hand it makes new commits not disappear somewhere in the 
middle but added to the tip of rebased branch - that being said I guess it 
will be desired practice to always:
git pull --rebase

Anyway, in my opinion, either forbidding rebase or forcing rebase should be 
made commit policy.
