No, because I think that new syntax is not necessary.

But admittedly, I haven't spent any time to think about push.default
modes other than 'matching'. In particular, I wonder how Junio's last
example with push.default=simple can work today:

   $ git pull --rebase  # not a merge
   $ git push

because it is not a fast-forward. I am assuming that a +refspec must be
in the game somehow. Why would we then need that --lockref implies
allow-no-ff when we already have +refspec that already means allow-no-ff?

But as I said, I'm not familiar with push.default other than matching
and my assumption may be wrong.
