Is this change appropriate:

I think not.

Whether a special form is implemented in c or lisp macro is
implementation details. I think it is best to revert your change and fix
the one sentence about "special form" instead.

Which sentence? Every hunk in that changeset contains the words "special form".

Most of the discussion here had to do with whether any Elisp macro can be called a special form. Apparently not:

ELISP> (special-form-p 'let)
ELISP> (special-form-p 'defun)
