Works for me (I've only set it up globally, so I didn't know it was
selectively possible).  Can you or one of the other admins set it up?
It would be very helpful.  A "dev/" prefix is fine by me, and makes it
easy to automatically fetch the relevant upstreams, something like:

[remote "origin"]
        fetch = +refs/dev/*/head:refs/remotes/origin/dev/*
