With the latest git version, you can have negative refspecs.

           If a refspec is prefixed by ^, it will be interpreted as a negative
           refspec. Rather than specifying which refs to fetch or which local
           refs to update, such a refspec will instead specify refs to
           exclude. A ref will be considered to match if it matches at least
           one positive refspec, and does not match any negative refspec.
           Negative refspecs can be useful to restrict the scope of a pattern
           refspec so that it will not include specific refs. Negative
           refspecs can themselves be pattern refspecs. However, they may only
           contain a <src> and do not specify a <dst>. Fully spelled out hex
           object names are also not supported.
