You're not going to require people to create a branch for *every
single* patch, right?

For that matter, I feel the control of branches should be shared
responsabilities when and where that appropriate.  In the case of the
trunk/silver I feel even more so that it should not depend on a single
point of failure.

Please be more specific, so that I can offer meaningful answer.
