It does, insofar as it barely concerns itself with EDITOR at all.
It only specifies that the "crontab", "fc", "mailx", and "more"
utilities use EDITOR and advises other applications to avoid using
it in a conflicting manner.  (The descriptions of the aforementioned
utilities are not all that detailed vis-à-vis EDITOR and could
reasonably be interpreted as allowing either method, but it doesn't
really matter as far as other utilities are concerned.)
