Good point.

Just a historical note: It used to appear in section 3.2.6, but our
response to ticket #9 elided it.  It should have appeared in the
grammar of the 5.91 draft, but got omitted due to an editorial error
on my part.

I believe (will try, anyway) sorting it all out will do a better job
of explaining things automatically.
