And this seems to be more natural, too. It can keep the internals (the
auxiliary ref on the server side) hidden from the user.

As for the triangle remote, I really think we should clean up the
situation regarding push, pushurlinsteadof and the various different and
inconclusive output formats of "git remote" (with or without "-v", with
or without a remote name) first, before introducing yet another way to
twist things around. "git push downstream" does not hurt any kittens
(while git remote ouput does, somehwat).
