By the way, an interesting implication of this is that I do not think
there is any format check on things outside of refs/. If you were to do

  git fetch ... +*:*

you would write whatever crap the other side gives you. I can't imagine
any reason a client would _ever_ do that, though, so I don't think it's
a big deal. We tend to fetch HEAD explicitly by name, and that's it.
