Could you please elaborate on this one?

The only reason I remember ever hearing was "it will send all notification 
e-mails again when you force-push". Why would that be a problem? Would 
disabling e.g. the CCMAIL, BUG and CCBUG keywords (or the all of the 
notification hooks) in all branches that support force pushes be a 
reasonable fix?

With kind regards,
