I did not know that putting non-function stuff into the function slot of
a symbol was a thing that we do.  Actually, I don't think it is.  :-)

So I agree that this documentation is still kinda incomprehensible, even
though what it says is literally true:

MACRO can also be a vector of keyboard events.  If MACRO is a symbol,
its function definition is used.

Perhaps something like

If MACRO is a symbol, and its function definition is a string or a
vector of keyboard events, its function definition is used.

?  Or put it at the end, saying that it's deprecated...
