I don't understand your aggressiveness, nor your point.  Stefan is just 
pointing out that C-M-a doesn't usually go to the beginning of the enclosing 
function definition (and the docs don't claim that it does, either):

  (beginning-of-defun &optional ARG)
  Move backward to the beginning of a defun.
  With ARG, do it that many times.  Negative ARG means move forward
  to the ARGth following beginning of defun.

I agree with the OP that it would be very nice to have a way to go back to the 
beginning of the "current" defun (some sort of super C-M-u).  But I don't 
understand the vitriol.
