That is not a problem. We need to say what command line argument X
(e.g. <path>, but not limited to it) does in all pages for commands
that pay attention to X anyway.
A more important reason to have them as separate entries is to avoid
giving a wrong impression that "--" is somehow related to <path>,
which is where the mistake in the synopsis "[[--] <path>...]" that
started this thread comes from.
