You can also write this into the config...
OK, seriously: I think for "typical usage" one stores others' notes in a
different place anyways, e.g. I store Thomas' list-notes in
refs/remotes/trast/notes/ so that they don't interfer with my own notes.

I don't think that teaching --notes to git push (a la --tags) with a
standard refspec would help in many cases.

I'd say every merge needs a working directory, so, yes.
