Since you swapped the order here of "--mirror" versus non-mirror, saying
"other refs such as..." in the first part is confusing. We haven't
introduced the thing they're "other" from.

Maybe say "clone all refs (including ones which would be omitted by a
non-mirror clone, like refs/remotes/*)" or something?

Other than that, this version looks OK to me.
