I don't know, but if it is not already in the language, it may be
because there could be some issues.

I personally find it kind of weird to mix deffn and defvrx in the same block.  If I were writing this from scratch, I would have separated them.  But this is a conversion of an old Scribe doc, so that's way too much effort.  I might just do

@end defun
@end defvar

to get the entries into the right index and still have it look as if they're together as in the original doc.  This is mostly busy work.

Oh, and for the record, look at for the original Scribe version.  Look at the bottom of page 7.

For the conversion, see the bottom of page 6 of

just so the various bits are in the correct index.
