    I wanted to substitute "current directory" by "current buffer's default
    directory" because the latter can be explained in terms of the glossary.

That change is not correct.  The term "absolute file name" is not
specific to Emacs, so its definition must not be based on Emacs-only

Please keep the old text there.

    I have taken that verbatim from the definition of "whitespace character"
    in the Elisp manual, is that incorrect?

Please keep the old text in that place.  I don't have time for
more explanation today.
