As described in the docs there are only two things a prerequisite can
do: impose order and effect the out-of-date decision of the target. 
Order-only prerequisites do one of them (impose order) and don't do the
other (effect out-of-date decisions).

What are the "considerably more" things that order-only prerequisites
do, besides impose order?

I do agree that the docs need clarification though.
