In general, "commit" uses whatever "init" used.  However, you can
override that with the --branch option and use a full URI.

You should never have to set a default.  Setting a default just makes
life easier.

What does "arx tree-branch" give?

As an aside, are you sure you want to have separately named archives
-remote and -personal?  The section on mirroring

talks about syncing different machines.

Correct.  ArX will use the output of "arx param id" for each user.

I do not know of any other docs.  On my system, the full set of
gnomevfs convenience functions is

gnomevfs-cat      gnomevfs-info     gnomevfs-monitor
gnomevfs-copy     gnomevfs-ls       gnomevfs-mv
gnomevfs-df       gnomevfs-mkdir    gnomevfs-rm
