Thanks for writing this.  I'd be in favor of making this die().
Compare what we already do in push:

	if (args->push_options && !push_options_supported)
		die(_("the receiving end does not support push options"));

What happens in the case of push with protocol v0, where server options
are supported?

nits:
- error and warning messages tend to use lowercase
- the user running into this may want to know how to switch to a better
  protocol version.  Is there e.g. a manpage we can point them to?

For example:

	fatal: server options require protocol version 2 or later
	hint: see protocol.version in "git help config" for more details

> +	transport->server_options = NULL;

Should this use a static to also warn only once in the tag-catchup case
you mentioned?

Looks like this only affects fetch, so the question above about push
is only about the commit message.

With whatever subset of the suggested changes makes sense,

Thanks.
