Hi Michel,

As a general rule, we've preferred social solutions to problems over
technical enforcement measures - only using technical enforcement when
strictly necessary.
This is why despite a preference for getting code reviewed, developers
still have permission to commit directly to repositories without

To allow for the possibility that people need to adopt work done
already by others, it would be preferrable to not restrict work
branches in the manner you've suggested above.
