... which is belied further down by the description
of `lax-plist-get'.

That's the point.  The intro says that they all use
`eq' - which is wrong.  The entry for `plist-get'
says nothing about comparison.  The entry for `lax...'
says it uses `equal'.

Parallel construction calls for each to say what it
uses, and remove the statement saying that they all
use `eq'.

This is about making the doc clearer.
