If gerrit is used... That is not the case today for sure.

I am no gerrit expert, but I think gerrit puts the branch in the repo, just not under refs/heads/. So you don't avoid the branch refs.

I also not sure that gerrit is the right tool for long running branches which may contain experiments.

In any case, until such a workflow is developed and put in place, we can't use denyDelete=true.  (not sure how gerrit would work with denyDelete=true?)
