Then you have no need or use for git credentials. Where’s the problem? 

Will the fact that git credential users, that already have per-repo-url
settings in their .gitconfig, will also be able to use this existing
per-url section to control the mail and name associated with their
repos, wake you at night, or something?

One could use the same arguments to say git credentials is not
necessary, it's a maintenance burden, everyone should just script their
auth needs manually, etc.

Are you arguing for git credentails removal here?

Or are you arguing that having two separate mecanisms in git, to match
config directives to repo urls, is some kind of improvement?

I didn't create or write or specify the way git credential matches repo
urls. It already exists within git. If you have a problem with the
matching logic git credential uses, why are you arguing with me instead
of taking it up with the maintainers of this logic?
