'a/b/c' when 'a/b' just exists. Yup, that is one of the natural consequences of the design to organize refs in a directory like hierarchies. There are various ref backends (e.g. packed-refs that already exists, and reftable) that could potentially store both D and D/F at the same time, but it is very likely that the higher layer that calls into these ref backends will keep the behaviour as a policy, to ensure that those on older versions of Git can smoothly interoperate with newer versions of Git. Thanks.
