IMO, yes. It's a branch shared across many people and often being the base for 
yet another branch, so the annoyance of someone doing a force-push there would 
be quite high.

I'm in favor of only relaxing the permissions for "personal" branches (i.e. 
branches that you've created yourself (in Plasma, we're using 
username/branchname quite consistently, so just matching for "starts with 
$username" would work well enough for me).
