For disconnected operation, you need another branch on your laptop and
star-merge it when you connect. (Recall, that you can merge between
archives at will).

If you think of it, commit to a mirror can never work, because noone can
guarantee, that someone else won't commit different changes to another
mirror under same name.

No. Multiple different commit operations are strange at best. You can
commit each change separately to a "development" branch and then
star-merge to a "mainline". Then there will be one changelog for the
merge and one changelog for each of your small changes.
