[Bug-tar] suggestion re: 'MEMBER'

At the top of the man page for 'tar', there are many references to the argument 'MEMBER' but then it's not defined anywhere.

It took quite a bit of reading before I was able to deduce that it must simply be some file/directory that's already inside an existing archive.
(Which finally explains why it's only available to the --list and --extract operations.)

It just sure would've been nice if it explicitly stated that at the beginning somewhere.
