That's my assumption - all refs (including renamed ones from the old 
git-svn history) are under refs/heads or refs/tags, users / companies may 
use subdirectories under there, all refs get pulled by default.  (And I 
don't think we should try to limit branch creation; if anyone wants to 
create a project branch shared by multiple users, they should be able to 
do so and not need to put it under a user directory.)
