Makes sense.

Well, I think that all public branches should follow the trunk model - if only
to make merging a dev branch to trunk possible without introducing messy

All shared branches, yes, but I think personal branches can be more volatile.

Can we limit the namespace one can create branches in?  Like force all
branches created by $user to be in namespace $user?
So require some super-powers to create a toplevel branch?

We can.

And make [user branches] not automatically pulled?

We can't control what 'git clone' pulls by default. People can clone with --single-branch to get just the trunk and then adjust what else gets pulled, but I think it will make most sense for most people to pull everything.
