But this is a special case for /home/user. The Tramp manual is not the
place to list the extensive list of possible special cases. And for
other methods, this might even not be true.

It is not a shortcut, but plain ssh behavior. If you don't give a user
name, the local user name is taken unless there is a user name in
./ssh/config. The Tramp manual is not the place to describe all ssh
configuration possiblities; the man page of ssh does it better.

Using Tramp requires basic knowledge about the underlying commands.

Best regards, Michael.
