Hm, losing this functionality in the name of generality would
certainly be very undesirable.

Not at all (which is what I've been trying to say).
remote.<name>.fetch is operated on by fetch, while branch.<name>.merge
is operated on by merge; they are really orthogonal.  What happens if
both branch.<name>.push and remote.<name>.push are set?  What will
push do?

Perhaps we should get both, and get branch.<name>.push to override
remote.<name>.push.  The issue being @{d} will not work if
remote.<name>.push is set.  Then again, since we're targeting Gerrit
users here, I don't really think it's an issue: refs/for/master is not
really a "downstream branch"; it's a pseudo-ref that Gerrit handles
