Summary 0001117: Use of "implementation-defined" in command -v / -V
Description The -v and -V options for "command" include the text "and any
implementation-defined functions that are found using the PATH
variable (as described in Section 2.9.1.1, on page 2367)".

I suspect this is intended just to mean "functions defined by the
implementation", but by using the defined term "implementation-defined"
the text introduces a documentation requirement. This is not the
appropriate place to make such a requirement - if we want the functions
found by PATH to be documented, 2.9.1.1 is the place to require it,
not here.
Desired Action For both -v and -V, change:

    and any implementation-defined functions that are found using the PATH variable

to:

    and any implementation-provided functions that are found using the PATH variable
