In the new text:

a  command-apropos.  Give a list of words or a regexp, to get a list of
        commands whose names match (they contain two or more of the words,
        or a match for the regexp).  See also the  apropos  command.

I don't understand why two or more of the words, if it is possible to
give just one word and find a command whose names contains one word.
Maybe more correct text is "they contain one or more of the words".

I see there is a new key binding `C-h d' for `apropos-documentation'.
Wouldn't it be better to reserve `C-h d' for something more useful
and to bind `apropos-documentation' to a new key prefix `C-h a'?
This will allow key bindings for the whole family of apropos commands:

    C-h a d - apropos-documentation
    C-h a v - apropos-variable
    C-h a c - apropos-command
    C-h a l - apropos-value
    C-h a a - apropos
