It's not about whether the user cares or not; it's about saying it in
a way that doesn't make it less precise.  I'm saying "@ is like a
symbolic-ref .git/@ ref referring to HEAD, except it doesn't sit on
the filesystem".

It's not important that end users understand it fully.  It's only
really useful in two cases: @~ and @^, and I've provided examples

A user seeing @{} might vaguely recall @ and scroll-back here.  In
which case, this is useful.

Those two are right next to each other.
