No. What's the point of 'git fetch .'? What does 'git fetch' does when
there's no configured upstream branch? Why doesn't 'git fetch' default
to 'git fetch .' in those cases?

Answer: because 'git fetch .' doesn't make any sense. So if
'branch.HEAD.remote' is '.' it doesn't make sense to do 'git fetch .'.

Yeah, add 'branch.A.base' that would be used only by 'git rebase',
which I already suggested before, but I changed my mind.

Fixing 'git fetch' makes much more sense.
