You push the code to a repository and then you use that repository as
the basis for a pull request.  But the code being available somewhere is
a function of the first part of that, not the second.  You created a
publicly available clone of the original repository that contains your
patched tree.  You can push your changes to a publicly accessible place
(GitHub, Sourcehut, a simple self-hosted git repository on your web
server, etc.) regardless of the method you use to notify the original
author of your patch.

This is much less likely to be the case when the plus is at the
beginning and what comes after is obviously meaningful.  What's more,
anyone familiar with the 'pluses in email addresses' convention is a
power user.  Power users should be able to learn new things and apply
critical thinking.
