I meant after ^, ~, @{} have been peeled off.  Just before resolving
what's left.

I wanted to explain it through an implementation, but okay.  In your
proposal, @ is a special ref: it behaves like a ref in a rev spec, but
cannot be update-ref'ed or symbolic-ref'ed.  This is probably the best
we can do, unless we want to emulate a full ref (I'm not sure how
useful the .git/@ override will even be).
