Yes, I see that point.

In theory it would be possible to designate a repository as the default baseline for object sharing even though it's not the default for name lookup, but it would be quite a lot of extra configuration complexity and so I think it's probably not a good idea.

We've discussed having an explicit fork action in the past, which would give us explicit knowledge of the repository to object-share with rather than having to guess, and would let us tell users what URL to push to rather than relying on them knowing how Launchpad's Git URL namespace is laid out. I'm not opposed to that, but it would be an extra chunk of work.
