I believe that sums it up.  It doesn't affect typical git push
behavior.  The goal was to alleviate a common issue people run into
when trying to push into non-bare repositories.  It came up often
enough in #git on freenode that it became a FAQ.  So now if folks want
to push into non-bare repositories, they have to pass the "I've read
the documentation and explicitly enabled it" test.
