I have been hesitant to claim that it does not make any sense to
use more than one tracking branch for the same remote branch,
because the only reason I might say so is because I haven't
thought of a good usage pattern to do so.

But apparently you do use more than one local branch to keep
track of one remote branch.  How do you use it for?  Do you feel
it is a good feature to be able to do that, or do you think it
is just a mistake and more sensible error message is what we
would really want?
