You know I am a little surprised force push is allowed.

When Paul first looked into setting up r/w git, a major foundation concern was getting a sufficiently
auditable revision history (a strong point of svn), and IIRC quite some effort was spent locking
things down [1].

The fact it _isn’t_ fully locked down right now is a deviation from the original plan. Seems
pretty likely to me there was a use case that required opening it up. I would guess tag moving
to be a major argument, which I _think_ requires forcing.
