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
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?
