Does this accept an arbitrary git URL, or only remote names?

The current documentation makes it sound like the latter, which makes
this exception seem very weird.  Is it actually the former?

I think a cross-reference to the "git urls" or "git remotes"
documentation would be a better way to go, instead of having to repeat
the rules of URL syntax everywhere they are used.
