That said, I agree that the man page does look a bit confusing, and 
perhaps we could go with:

  =item B<snapshot-create-as> I<domain> {[I<--print-xml>]
  | [I<--no-metadata>] [I<--halt>]} [I<name>] [I<description>]
-[I<--disk-only> [I<diskspec>]...]
+[I<--disk-only>] [[I<--diskspec>] B<diskspec>]...

to make it obvious that B<diskspec> is a literal term, optionally 
preceded by a literal --diskspec.
