This documentation bug is common.  That doesn't make it correct (*,**).
Even if it was standard, standard can be incorrect and subject to
improving.  If a practice doesn't make sense, then that practice needs
to be changed.

(*) Lack of an article is not incorrect per se, but we don't have space
limitations in the description field, so no need to compress the
description by leaving out articles.

(**) E.g., there is a wide-spread (standard?) cross-compilation bug in
the use of 'wrap-program', which is more often than not used
incorrectly, see <>.  This does not
make it somehow correct.
