I'm not sure what you mean, but the assumption that a public branch (like master/develop in boost) is never force pushed, is fairly basic. It's not even possible to do in most other source control systems. Unfortunately, the flexibility of git results in mistakes and fixing them almost always has unfortunate tradeoffs and the best way to avoid mistakes is to take great care in the things one does.
