A scratch branch is still a public branch.

I don't necessarily object to excluding them from emacs-diffs, but I
don't know who can do that, nor whether it's at all possible.

I don't see why you need all that.  The final merge onto master needs
to be tested anyway, so the best practice IME is not to merge from
master during development.

first place.
