Summary:                    Some "WORD tokens" do not have "the associated
command"

Let's not confuse different topics. If you want to make another report that
"associated command" is unclear, you are welcome to.  I don't.  My report
is about something else, and the reason why I mentioned "associated
command" was not defined, was so that I could take the "broadest" possible
interpretation.

I am also not arguing what the purpose of this piece was.  I know that very
well.  

My report is about something else, and that is, the text in question is
erroneous (regardless of what its purpose is).

Now, we come to your second paragraph.  If that were the meaning of
"associated command", then, note that one kind of command, for example, is
"brace_group".  So we would have to know what it means to "execute" a brace
group.  Well, there is no such notion.  Indeed, if we tried to make it
work, we would have to expand all WORD tokens inside a brace group, before
"executing" the brace group, which clearly does not make sense.
