1. If that's what you want, why do a commit?  You can test the modified
files without committing them.

2. That is rather sophisticated use; a user who might want to do this
would know how to get what he wants.  He could set a flag saying
that C-x v v should not push in this repository, or whatever it takes.

In general, the messages opposing this change have presented arguments
that are weak: possible problems for expert git users that have
obvious solutions that would be be easy for an expert git user to use.
