Right, but accepting status.branch would not even solve that. Script
writers should not assume that status.branch is set. So, the --branch is
still required.

Actually, that would even be worse, as a script writer who's used to
status.branch being set would not even notice that --branch is missing.
So, he'd still need it, but would have greater chance to miss it.
