I do not follow.  Just like "commit --amend", checking out another
branch to leave a detached HEAD _is_ an explicit way to discard what
you started experimenting behind, declaring it useless.  Otherwise
you would have saved it to some named branch.

This of course assumes that, as you said in one of your earlier
messages, the user knows what he is doing, though.
