Is there a reason why POSIX would want the return behavior to of function down the stack to behave differently when in a trap? Seems strange to me.

I don't remember if Koichi ever opened up a bug with the Austin Group.
Until then, I'm going by the plain language of the standard. It seems more
strange that POSIX would have intended this to mean only a `return' in the
actual action string (A) instead of while the trap action is executing (B).
