Is the definition ARRAY argument of the SIZE intrinsic correct?

13.7.155 says
"ARRAY shall be a scalar or array of any type"

but all of the discussion and examples only refer to
case where ARRAY is an array.

The definition in the chapter 2 glossary says

of an array, the total number of elements in the array

Which also seems to imply that only arrays have a size.
