After talknig with ajk a bit about this idea , I summarize: 
The basic idea behind all this, is that in a contrib you simply no longer have 
a HEAD. 

Its just a switch of mindset, not thinking of HEAD as latest but some branch 
as latest. Makese sense for cnotrib only, by the way. 

One other thing, one should delete all HEAD files except README.txt which 
says "Please use a stable release from the DRUPAL_x branch". That way, when 
DRUPAL-6 is close people don't try installing ur module expecting it to work. 
Policy in the README helps and saves all those "this module dont work" forum 

Maybe this can go into a handbook page? ior is it too trivial?
