There are no "git pull requests". There are GitHub pull requests, and
BitBucket pull requests, and Gerrit pull requests, and so on. It doesn't
really matter whether or not they're all implemented the same way.

Nonsense. You're describing one _posslble_ way to implement a "code
review with automatic merge" workflow. What people tend to call "pull
requests" these days is a feature that's quite a bit older than git (or
bitkeeper before that) and worked just fine with centralised
repositories. Let's not confuse the forest and the trees.
