There's nothing to undo, since we rejected the answer to interp 0091 in

May I suggest

[78:16] Replace "a named" by "an"

[78:21-22] After "a function result," insert "a component,".

Look at [51:16-17], which says "a data component is an array if...", and
at [51:18] where it explicitly references explicit shape.  It's clear
that contemplates that an array component that is not a
deferred-shape array is an explicit-shape array.  Either we have to
mutilate so that array components aren't arrays (and I have no
idea how to do so), or we have to repair  I prefer the
