I see though that json_array_element has a DESCR comment.  I believe
project policy is that if a function is not meant to be invoked by name
but only through an operator, its pg_description entry should just be
"implementation of xyz operator", with the real comment attached only
to the operator.  Otherwise \df users are likely to be misled into using
the function when they're not really supposed to; and at the very least
they will bitch about its lack of documentation.
