I think the description of -e should be replaced by:

    -e When this option is on, if either
          * a pipeline, or
          * a simple command that is not in a pipeline
       fails for any of the reasons listed in Section 2.8.1 (on page
       2315) or returns an exit status value >0, and is not part of
       the compound list following a while, until, or if keyword, and
       is not a part of an AND or OR list, and is not a pipeline
       beginning with the ! reserved word, then the shell shall
       immediately exit.
