I've now changed the two instances to refer to input-decode-map (only).

Makes sense...  but should we then change the bit in the manual that

@code{local-function-key-map} inherits from @code{function-key-map},
but the latter should not be used directly.

Perhaps we should change that to something that says more explicitly
what the effect of using function-key-map is?  Something like "which
should only be used if you want the changes in all terminals"?
