Am I correct to understand that your "git fsck" would fail because
these HEAD refs used by other stale worktrees are pointing at
missing objects?

What do you mean by "expired"?  "Even though I want to keep using
them, Git for some reason decided to destroy them." or "I no longer
use them but kept them lying around."?

If the latter, I wonder "worktree prune" to remove the
admininstrative information for them would unblock you?
