           Summary: Active range's definition relies on the "context
                    object" but there might not be one

            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2

"context object" is defined as "the object on which the method or attribute
being discussed was called".

"active range" is defined as "The active range is the first range in the
Selection given by calling getSelection() on the context object". However, in
the context of the definition of "active range", there isn't a method or
attribute being discussed, so the term "context object" is undefined.

If we assume that the definition of "context object" is to be inherited from
wherever the term "active range" is defined, then this fails in the case of the
"Additional Requirements" section, where user interaction results in calling
algorithms that rely on the active range, despite no method or attribute being
involved at all at any point.
