The problem here is that such an automatic prevention system is
interfering with valid workflows (i.e. pull requests) of projects like
Cordova/Callback that are already familiar with Git.

That's why I'd rather have this as an optional feature that could be
turned off by projects that would rather use social means to prevent
(and recover from) accidents.
