Perhaps the point was supposed to be that the order of the elements in a
keymap ONLY matters in a menu, therefore there is no point to use
define-key-after with anything other then menu entries, therefore
define-key-after does not need to be extended to handle the same range
of key syntax that define-key can, therefore this is just a
documentation bug for define-key-after.
