I don't want to keep them, why do you think I do?

tag. For example, 4.5.0-rc1 etc. This way you can keep RC tagged and look it up in future.
A lot of projects do it this way.
I use the timestamp format for this but in branch format. These
branches can be thrown away when voted away. I think this is less of a
pollution then the old way.

old way:
a->a-revert->some improvements->b->b-revert->some improvements->c >>
next version

new way
a->some improvements->b->some improvements->c
a branch abandoned, b branch abandonned

I am not sure if you are misunderstanding the new way of working or I
am misunderstanding your objections to it.
