Branch Permissions to restrict branch creation

I do not see an option to prevent branch creation in bitbucket. Is there a reason this was omitted? I would like to prevent the creation of branches matching certain patterns. I had this set up on gitolite, but don't seem to have that option with bitbucket.

You need an app in order to prevent branch creations based on patterns, I have evaluated Jira Hooks for Bitbucket (server only) and it seems to do a good job. The other option would be to write a Git hook, but then you have to make sure the hook has been added to all clients.
