From section 2.12 and from messages posted here in the past I

I agree with Greg here, it's a well known "don't". What should be documented is (maybe it is?) how pipelines are implemented in general, the behaviour of read is just a plain consequence of that.

Infact I mean that reading a reference manual doesn't avoid learning a language and its behaviours.
