Good catch IMHO. My first thought also would be to separate the
branches the package (co-)maintainers create, and those that
every contributor can create to reduce conflicts. However, I would
try to make them distinguishable, e.g.:

      for branches where all people in the pkg ACLs can push to

      for the "any contributor can push" branches

Having private-foo-baar for feature foo-bar and private-foo-bar for user
foo's bar branch could end up being quite confusing.
