There is no ?table 13.6?.  The ?table? in 13.6 is not a table.  This should probably be fixed in the next revision (along with improving the wording here).

No they?re not, any more than ADJUSTL or BESSEL_JN is missing.  They aren?t listed in the table, because they are not specific intrinsics.

They don?t have specific names for any precision.

Specific names for intrinsic functions have not been added to the language for over 30 years!  F90, F95, F2003 and now F2008 have all added new generic intrinsic functions without adding any more specific intrinsic functions.
