I personally do not care _too_ deeply either way, but I agree our
documentation tends to use the latter more and being consistent
would be good.

This "refspecs" only come via the helper and not directly from the
end user, no?

If that is the case, I do not think "confusing" is much of an issue.
Not _("localizing") is also the right thing to do.  We may want to
say "BUG: " at front to clarify it is not the end-user's fault, but
a problem they may want to report.  If we at this point know what
helper attempted export without giving refspecs, it may help to show
it here, so that developers will know with what helper the user
had problems with.
