Monotone can have multiple heads in one single branch, but from what I
understand that mostly happens locally (not on the published repo).
Anyway, If that happens the commits are still there, just dangling
temporarily in no branch.

There isn't much we can do for that situation, except maybe create
branch_n or something. I don't think it's a big problem.
