I don't think this was a good move for the documentation. Now every
time I find an old repo with "push.default=tracking" I end up
wondering what it was a synonym for again, and other users who don't
know what it does will just assume it's an invalid value or something.
We can't treat existing config values we still support as any other
deprecated feature. They still exist in files we have no control over,
and in people's brains who are reading "man git-config" trying to
remember what it meant.
