Note that once you started using the plumbing you are assumed to
know what you are doing.  "update-ref -d" does not offer the "you
will be losing these commits" safety, and it will not remove
configuration items for "branch.--tracking.*" keys.  You would want
to remove them yourself if you want to emulate "git branch -d".
