If anything it should point to mozilla-unified, but more likely it should point to the standalone bootstrap.py script, which the documentation for macOS and Linux also do.

Summary: Windows build documentation suggests clong from mozilla-central → Windows build documentation suggests cloning from mozilla-central

Today the docs tell you to directly clone mozilla-central, which is a weird departure from what we do in the other per-platform documents for no real reason. Instead, reference the standalone bootstrap.py script as we do for Linux and macOS.

Also, do a little scan and replace references to mozilla-central with mozilla-unified where appropriate.
