I found myself thinking the same thing. It's really convenient being
able to set your topic branch's upstream to another local branch, so git
rebase works without parameters. But then I can't use upstream to point
to a remote version of that topic branch. I want my topic branch to know
both that it's based on master (or origin/master), and that it's
upstream is origin/topic.
I think the current 'upstream' behavior should be split into
'upstream' and 'base'.
So, yes, here's a vote in favour of the general concept.
