It doesn't strike me as being elegant at all.

[branch "hot-branch"]
    remote = ram
    push = refs/heads/for-junio/hot-branch

1.  I git branch -M for-each-ref and push.  Screwed.

2.  Let's say you give me the thumbs up to write hot-branch to origin.
 Excitedly, I change the remote to origin.  Now I already have push
semantics for origin (you obviously want me to write to rr/, so I can
cooperate with others):

[remote "origin"]
    push = refs/heads/*:refs/heads/rr/*

Unfortunately, it doesn't kick in unless I change branch.<name>.push.

I guess what I'm saying is: refspec semantics are inherent properties
of the remote, not of the local branch.  Since there is no
intermediate refs/remotes/* sitting between the remote and local
branches, this is _not_ like branch.<name>.merge at all.  That is why
I'm tiling towards remote.<name>.push: we're not giving up any
functionality anyway; there's nothing we can't do without
