For what reason? Are the git or bzr files causing issues on HG?
No, but wrong .gitignore causes issues with git repo obtained via hg-fast-import. If it is meant as an intentional sabotage of using git (and bzr) for cpython, then that's the only explanation I can understand, otherwise it doesn't make sense to me why these files are in HG repository at all.
As Guido explained, the bzr and git ignore files are there to allow Git and Bzr users to collaborate on them, updating a standard copy when the .hgignore entries change (which doesn't happen very often).
If they get outdated (or otherwise contain erroneous entries), then the appropriate response is to either update them directly (core developers that use a different DVCS for their local workflow), or raise a tracker issue pointing out they they have become stale (everyone else that uses a different DVCS for their local workflow).
