I'm not sure the git: protocol is very useful without the git tool as well.
And, the since the git tool already implements the git protocol using libcurl,
I personally don't see much gain, except perhaps for the (very few) alternative
git implementations that might use a built-in git protocol. But, there would be
far too few of those to make this worthwhile. What is your use case?
