I don't understand that statement.
If "git add" is all about specifying what lives under paths in the worktree,
what's wrong with letting "git add" go beyond specifying just files?
Syntax aside for the moment, I think a command like
git add git-repo-reference foo
is perfectly natural: It specifies what is inside worktree path foo.
