We currently have no system to differentiate between those two cases.

I've been harping about how this safety valve is poorly done, and I'm
the first person interested in loosening it.  But I do not think this
is the way to do it: drop in branch.<name>.push magic, and make
upstream suddenly work with triangular workflows?

No, no.  What I meant is:

  From the documentation of push.default, I _expect_ upstream to kick
  in only in the first case.  In the second case, I _know_ that my
  push.default is inconsequential.

With branch.<name>.push magic, you've sneaked in a push refspec under
the carpet, and the first form suddenly doesn't care about
push.default anymore.  remote.<name>.push is also an under-the-carpet
implementation that I don't like: it's done in push_with_options()
which can completely bypass setup_default_push_refspecs(), shooting
the user in the face.

I want properly defined precedence and well-defined overall behavior.
Not sneaky stuff.  I don't have an answer, but will start a discussion
with some code soon.  In the meantime, since we've already figured out
this series, merge it without 6/6.
