I find that nice, too, but back then I seemed to be the only one, "then"
being the time when I proposed (and implemented) branch notes as notes
(git notes) being attached to the (sha1 of the) branch name (or any
other refname). They are versioned/shareable/syncable just like notes
are. I had all of this working (git branch --notes display, git
format-patch --cover-letter and such); what was missing was a way to
attach/look-up notes for remote branches, which is related to our
current lack of default handling of remote notes refs. That's not a
fundamental problem, just a matter of agreeing about a proper default
setup for remote notes refs.

As I said, others preferred local branch descriptions (no git notes) in
config, and that's what is in git.git now.
