Version 2.7 of the Elisp info pages.

On page "Narrowing", the description of "narrow-to-region" fails to state
what is done should POINT initially be outside the specified region.

There seem to be two canditates for the Right Thing:  (1): Move POINT to
the nearest region boundary;  (2): Signal an error.

Experimentation shows that (1) is done.

I think this should be documented.
