I intended to make it as an example of exchanging words which might
be more useful than exchanging characters.  So that example
could be rewritten as something like below, and be placed into
(info "(emacs)Regexp Replace") instead of the current
(info "(emacs)Unconditional Replace"), or to the same node
where you might document this new feature.

  M-x replace-regexp <RET> \(ab\|cd\) <RET>
                           \,(if (equal \& "ab") "cd" "ab") <RET>
