I think the relevant text is in, [283:9-11], which covers the 
case of a generic name and a procedure name being the same. The next 
paragraph, [283:12-13] covers the case of a generic name being the same 
as a derived-type name.

The cross reference at [442:19] appears to need fixing.

Yes, because of C496 at [80:22-24].  See also Note 4.58 on the same page.
