Summary 0001519: Mismatch between sh and set for -o and +o with no option-argument
Description The sh SYNOPSIS shows -o and +o as requiring an option-argument; however the description in OPTIONS refers to set for these options, and set has SYNOPSIS lines that allow them without an option-argument.

Some shell implementations complain if you invoke them with "sh -o" or "sh +o", but others do the equivalent of "set -o" or "set +o" (and then enter interactive mode).
Desired Action Append to the second paragraph of OPTIONS (where set is referenced):
If the -o or +o option is specified without an option-argument, the behavior is unspecified.
