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.
