It'd be appreciated if someone can tell me any good workflow to keep a
good-shaped tree without rebasing...

Linus suggests to just not do many merges from upstream -- basically only at releases.

I'm only looking at and experiencing things from the limited viewpoint of a leaf node though so I'll shut up for a bit first now as this might not be helpful.
