If _that_ is the problem you are really trying to address, the
output from recent Git already says "(detached from xxxxxx)" or
something, so I suspect there is nothing to fix in the glossary.  We
are exposing the word "detached" more to the UI, so that people who
do not know what it means can come to the glossary.

I guess "(no branch)" is no longer necessarily what we output from
there, so the updated description for "git branch" needs to be a bit
different from "the command says (no branch) when detached", but I
think it still is a good idea to mention what the user is expected
to see.
