I am mildly negative on that change.  "Omitting both would give an
empty diff" would be understandable to anybody who understands that
an omitted end of dot-dot is substituted with HEAD *and* thinks what
range HEAD..HEAD means, so it is just an additional noise to them,
and to those who do not want to waste time on thinking, it is a
statement that reads as if "it will be an error" without saying why
it is an error.  So overall, it seems, at least to me, that the
additional text adds negative value.

So, I dunno.
