Yes and no.  If they are used as a means of cooperation among a group
working around the limitations of the main project's policies, having
a "policy" would imply something like an "administrational fork", an
impression which people want to avoid like the plague.

git's history basically is a management tool for patch sets.
Developers may or may not use it without affecting the overall
project.  I have quite a few project with a central Subversion
repository where I manage my local work and branches using git.
