push: require force for refs under refs/tags/
References are allowed to update from one commit-ish to another if the former is an ancestor of the latter. This behavior is oriented to branches which are expected to move with commits. Tag references are expected to be static in a repository, though, thus an update to something under refs/tags/ should be rejected unless the update is forced.
