I don't know the history in detail, but I know the restriction against
pushing to non-bare repositories is relatively recent.  Maybe the part
that was new in 1.7 was the config option that lets the repository
know that it's bare and can therefore accept pushes?  I can't think of
any other reason for the bare/non-bare distinction to be kept in the
repository itself.
