I agree that the term "backs up" is a very ugly one, unrelated to any usual
English meaning of this verb, and this reflects the fact that the relationship
of these function definitions to the operators they underpin is unclear to many
readers.

I propose to use the phrase "This function defines the semantics of the XX
operator..."

Note also, there are numerous occurrences of the phrase "This functions backs
up" which should be "This function...".

I have taken the liberty of classifying this as editorial. I am proposing to
include this change with a package of similar editorial improvements to the
spec.
