No, it is a nonsense to unconditionally forbid fast-forwards to refs
outside refs/heads/ hierarchy.
I was imagining a more general feature to allow the *user* to ask
Git not to fast-forward some refs (not limited to refs/tags/) during
If such a general feature were in place, you can think of your patch
as automatically making the user to ask Git not to fast-forward refs
in refs/tags/, which would be a mere special case of it.
And I was wondering if such a general feature makes sense.
