Slightly more disc space on the server, yes. One idea was to use
$GIT_OBJECT_DIRECTORY, though, which means that we could still use a
shared object storage. We would only need to store the refs separately.

The other possibility is to tell Git to not advertise refs outside the
currently selected namespace. I am not entirely sure whether that is a
good idea and whether it would be accepted upstream, though.

No, this hasn't been discussed in public yet.
