The doc string of `display-buffer' says:

    If ACTION is non-nil, it should have the form (FUNCTION . ALIST),
    where FUNCTION is either a function or a list of functions, and
    ALIST is an arbitrary association list (alist).

    Each such FUNCTION should accept two arguments: the buffer to
    display and an alist.  Based on those arguments, it should
    display the buffer and return the window.

I think FUNCTION is allowed to do nothing and return nil.
The doc string should say so.

It should also say that ACTION can have only FUNCTIONs
or only an ALIST.
