Yes, that's what I understood.  So the proposed doc
misleads.  (And it doesn't describe all such keymaps,
because it doesn't consider all repeatable commands -
see next.)

I agree.

And as I mentioned earlier, it should be made clear
in the doc that "repeatable" here means only commands
defined using `repeat.el'.

There are other ways to define repeatable commands,
and those commands aren't represented by this
describe feature.

(It's not even clear to me that this feature really
helps users.  A naming convention (combined with
`commandp', of course) makes more sense to me.)
