You keep saying they are orthogonal, but they are not. Read

And try this:

[remote "origin"]
        url = g...@github.com:felipec/git.git
        # fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*
[branch "master"]
        remote = origin
        merge = refs/heads/master

Can you merge? No. Can you do master@{u}? No. Several other things don't work.

        pushdefault = origin
[remote "origin"]
        push = refs/head/*:refs/heads/for/*
[branch "master"]
        pushremote = github
        push = refs/heads/new-master
[branch "next"]
        pushremote = origin
        push = refs/heads/new-next

% git checkout master && git push

Where should it go? github/new-master. Obviously.

% git checkout next && git push

Where should it go? origin/new-next. Obviously.

% git checkout main && git push

Where should it go? origin/for/maint. Obviously.

I don't see what the big deal is.

So? The answer is no.

The same commit 'git show @{-10000}' shows you. The fact it doesn't
resolve to a commit doesn't mean @{-100} is not the nth-hundredth
previous checkout.
