There are quite a lot of other target names we could mention as not
being special targets !

I think the thing you need to know, to understand what *is*
documented, is that the first rule read, when parsing the make files,
is the one made by default.  No name is special in this regard, except
that some (like .PHONY; quite probably all special targets) are
ignored when determining which is "first".
