We have short commit-specific format specifiers that don't work with refs, among several other quirks in . I personally think we should absolutely stay away from short format-specifiers (like %H, %f, %e; we'll soon run out of letters, and nobody can tell what they are without the documentation anyway) for the new options, and just start adding new long-form ones as and when they are necessary. I think refname:short, upstream:track, upstream:trackshort are very sensible choices, and that we should continue along that line. I'm fine with format-specifiers having meanings only in certain contexts as long as we document it properly (how can we possibly get %(refname) to mean something sensible in cat-file?). As far as this series is concerned, I think Peff can implement %H and %(object:[disk-]size) locally without worrying about code-sharing or waiting for us. Then, after the for-each-ref-pretty thing matures, we can just replace the code underneath.
