I think you said "more reasonable" without understanding what you
are saying is "more reasonable", then.  The mechanism is about
server side wanting to use refs to protect its own metadata from gc
without having to expose them; there is no "different levels".

to use a screwdriver.  The first three patches are to drive a nail
with hammer, OK?  Screws you keep bringing up is to be handled by
delayed ref advertisement.
