Yeah, usually I think it would be better to keep the positive and
negative forms together, but the way you have done it does seem a lot
more clear to me. I think it is because the default flips based on other
options. So you would be stuck writing something like:

  -e, --edit::
          Edit the commit message using `$EDITOR`. This is the default
          unless the `-F`, `-m`, or `-C` options are used; in those
          cases, `-e` or `--edit` can be used to invoke the editor.
          Likewise, `--no-edit` can be used to suppress the editor when
          using an existing commit message. For example, `git commit
          --amend --no-edit` amends a commit without changing its commit

Your split reads much better, IMHO.
