That's correct.

<Pedantic> Strictly speaking you could _try_ to push but the attempt 
would fail due to insufficient permissions. That's because the gitolite 
repos are configured read-only, and will remain so as long as the 
svn->gitolite bridge is in use. </Pedantic>

But the point is indeed exactly that: as long as svn is in the equation, 
we can' t push directly to git(olite). Thanks for bringing this up, so 
we can state that very explicitly.
