The problem I have with it is that it just kicks the can down the road to "entry
point".  That's precisely the criterion we want to describe, no: just what
constitute such entry points?

In bug #12583, I thought we had reached the conclusion that this is about all
"commands that use newcomment functions".  If that is a correct characterization
of the criterion, then why not say just that?

IOW, why not just drop the ", being entry points" part, since being an "entry
point" (to what?) is undefined and unclear (to me, at least)?
