It's a good idea on important systems - but then you shouldn't open
those machines to outside repositories anyway.
But if you don't do client-side filtering, you're helping the
repositories to fix their problems and become cleaner. Everyone benefits
in the long run.
There is no "one true answer to rule them all" in this case. Use
client-side filtering on the machines that must not break under any
circumstances. Relax the policy in the other cases. Use common sense.
