I'd expect that if git-remote-bzr is used for the conversion of the Bzr
repository into a Git repository, git-remote-bzr will also correctly
convert any personal branch, but I don't know those bzr->git conversion
tools to know which tool people want to use to do the conversion nor
whether this tool does work on external branches.

It's in the text you quoted (and which I re-quoted above as well for
convenience).  It's got nothing to do with Bzr (except for the fact that
vc-bzr.el does implement those features).

Can't be much worse than the current status quo.
