Again rebase is there to cleanup your work, to simplify your workflow so someone not necessarily something looking the code can make sense of it.

git bisect might work ok (I haven't used it extensively) but the more important is if you made a mistake and call someone to help, to ease that person's work by presenting a trimmed though more understandable tree.
