What justification do we have to break existing people's
configuration that says something like:

        [remote "ko"]
                url =
                push = master
                push = next
                push = +pu
                push = maint

by adding a _new_ requirement they may not be able to satisify?
Notice that the above is a typical "push only" publishing point,
where you do not need any remote tracking branches.

I am not opposed if your proposal were to introduce a new syntax
element that calls for this new feature, e.g.

        [remote "ko"]
                url =
                push = *pu
                fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/ko/*

but changing what "+" means to something new will simply not fly.
