Just look at Clearcase (again, sorry :) ). First, it has excellent merge
(tracking) capabilities. People can merge between branches in BOTH
directions as often as they like/need.

And secondly, it prohibits working on branches which don't belong to the
local replica. That means that users on other sites are forced to work
on branches, which are different from the branches being worked on at
the local site.

If you are used to working with branches, it doesn't matter anymore from
which site it comes.

Well, it is a good thing. That's the purpose of version control systems,
letting people keep working while the code diverges. Having different
replicas of the same repository is just "syntactic sugar".
