Peter, doesn't your patch also refer to the meaning of * and ** in function definitions?  

I would argue that the missing reference is to a paragraph further down:

   [...] If the syntax *expression appears in the function call, expression must evaluate to a sequence. Elements from this sequence [...]

Terry, the glossary you compiled certainly looks comprehensive. However, I wouldn't delay local fixes like the one discussed here until "the grand scheme" is committed.
