I'm pretty sure that we want HEAD to be only written as "HEAD". It's
known that systems with case-insensitive file systems sometimes allow
"head" instead of "HEAD" because the ref is written in the file system.

I think the improvement we'd want here is to reject HEAD being written
as "head" on those systems, but in a global way that affects all uses of
HEAD.
