It will not scale. If you make those refs available for
cloning/fetching, all of them will be advertised first thing when git
starts negotiate. Imagine thousands of refs (and keep increasing) sent
to the receiver at the beginning of every connection. Something like
"reverse git-notes" may transfer more efficiently. Or we need to
improve git protocol to handle massive refs better, something that's
been discussed for a while without any outcome.
