Why would any _beginner_ even be expected to ask "git help"
everything, including "user-manual", in the first place?  Wouldn't
things like /usr/share/doc/git-doc/ be the place to help them in a
consistent manner across different programs instead?

I doubt that there should be such a policy.

"git help" is primarily to show the manual pages, and some technical
details docs that are referenced from manpages may need to be
reachable from it.  The user manual, on the other hand, may
reference individual manpages but because it is primarily a document
that shows the overall flow to employ different commands, individual
manpages referring to the user manual feels entirely the other way
