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).
