Well, I think the documentation is confusing it. If these notations are not the same thing, should there be a table that shows the correspondence of these forms? If the pair notation shouldn't be used for adverbs, perhaps the documentation shouldn't note a "generalized adverbial form of Pair notation". I guess I'll just leave it at that, though, and not bring it up again.
