My thinking is that we don't use origin/next or origin/maint either
and both are common upstream in git and the kernel.

While origin/master is common, for our use, 'git push origin devel' (or
rawhide) makes more sense as it matches the use for other branches,
git push origin F-12.  There's nothing magical or required about using
master as the main branch.

Whether other users will be more confused by the incongruity of master
versus devel or that it differs from what they think git may require,
I don't know.
