I have used a branch for my packages so that it (mostly) remains as
simple as git pull/git push.

It does bring some added complexity, as the git pull is a potential
merge. In the case of magit, this is not going to be a problem as you
know how to use git well: you can avoid the merge if you want or deal
with it if you want. For others, it might be a little harder. It is why
I think ELPA should be modified by PRs where an upstream exists. Having
a branch makes this easier also.
