WithContext makes a shallow copy of a Request, and Clone makes a
deep copy. Both set the context of the new request. The distinction
between the two is clear, and it doesn't seem useful or necessary
to say that "it's rare to need WithContext".

Also update a couple locations that mention WithContext to mention
Clone as well.

Fixes #53413.
