I'm not sure I understand your procedure correctly, but couldn't you tag
these official releases, and only branch this tag later if you actually
need to do some bug fixing? Assuming that fixing bugs in an official
release is the exception rather than the rule, this would cut down quite a
bit on the number of branches.
