That's kind of my point. Why would they put two refs together in a
single push command? Did they mean "I am pushing up master, and since I
just tagged it, send the tag along, too"? Or did they really mean to
push them to two different places? If so, why not just run two separate
push commands?

I am not saying git should guess that the user wanted the tag to along
with master. I am saying that the set of rules to come to that
conclusion is going to be too baroque for the user to understand, and
too often wrong in other cases, and that we should not go there.
