I see nothing wrong with that.  DWIM-ish operation is not for
everybody, certainly for a package as flexible as Git.

The relevant question is: would this be useful in enough use cases to
justify the feature, at least as an option?

Please note how you put 3 assumptions one on top of the other, and
then made a conclusion out of that, which is basically founded on
nothing but your own experience and preferences.

What exactly would be the difference between the proposed vc-push and
invoking "git push" via M-! ?
