git annex sync --content operates on the whole work tree, not only the current directory. This is different than other git-annex commands, and makes sense in a way since git pull works like that too. But, sometimes I only want the content of a single directory, or perhaps file.

This could be implemented as git annex sync --content thedir, except that would conflict with the name of the remote to sync with that it currently takes. Perhaps git annex sync --dir==thedir, which automatically enables content syncing?

Going with --content-of, so it's clear it enables content syncing. With a -C short option. done --Joey
