As it stands the explanation of the -C option by itself is misleading. It doesn't mention the parameter passing at all. But it implies that all you need is a command that outputs possible completions. Particularly when you can see the following option -F explains how parameter passing is done, because that text is lacking for -C, it further implies that parameter passing is not done for -C. This is why I said that it's inconsistent.

I'll add something to the -C description referencing either the -F option
or the Programmable Completion section. Since the text is already there in
the description of -F, it makes sense to use it.
