    The defun for `goto-line' in emacs/lisp/simple.el specifically calls


    on the buffer before moving to the specified line number.  I don't
    know whether this is intended.

That line wasn't written by accident!

The most common use of goto-line is to go to a line number
that you got from some other program.  That program normally
operates on the whole file.  For goto-line to use a narrowed
line number would hardly ever be useful.

    If it is intended, the documentation should be modified in
    (emacs)Optional Mode Line

I don't see anything about goto-line in that node.
The text looks correct to me.
