Elsewhere in the manual, "fake function key" refers
to the symbol itself - e.g., in node `Menu Bar':

 "the fake function key 'menu-bar'"

Not `<menu-bar>'.  And not `<MENU-BAR>'.

 "To add an item to the menu bar, invent a fake function key of your
  own (let's call it KEY), and make a binding for the key sequence
  '[menu-bar KEY]'."

Not `<KEY>'.  (And KEY is a placeholder here.)

 "Here, 'edit' is the fake function key"

 "a list of fake function keys.... The default value
  is '(help-menu)'"

Not `(<help-menu>)'.  And not `<HELP-MENU>'.

And in node `Tool Bar':

 "fake function key called 'tool-bar'"

Not `(<tool-bar>)'.  And not `<TOOL-BAR>'.

The bug I cited is the only place where the treatment
is different, whether or not you argue that `<EAT>'
there is a key label.
