Can we limit the namespace one can create branches in? Like force all

git will create new namespaces for its own purpose in the future. If
you allow arbitrarily named namespaces clashes will happen.
I had been thinking of "namespace" as a subdirectory of refs/heads. But now I
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.)
I lean that way as well.
We should also talk about a policy for when we delete branches; there
are a bunch of ancient feature and testing branches in SVN that I think
are no longer interesting.
