Let's take the "David, I tested dev/staging at commit 43214314xxxxxx,
and it's fine" mail scenario.

What I would do then is
git push origin 43214314xxxxxx:refs/heads/dev/staging

and see whether it fails.  _That_ is something you can equally well.
The difference may just be that I check and mail you back telling you
"Uh, Graham? dev/staging has no commit 43214314xxxxxx.  What have you
been testing?" because either you or your tools tried to do more work
than they should, and arrived at something they _could_, but likely
_should not_ push.
