All the proposed collectives are transformational subroutines, and 
COELEMENTAL attribute has never been proposed.  What he meant was 
elemental routines should not be considered as if there were a requirement 
that all images should be evaluated identically in terms of routine 
characteristics.  Although I can't think of a case where this can be a 
problem for now, the original wording in F08 seems to prevent this on 
purpose.  I'd not be surprised to see a further interp trying to reverse 
this interp answer again.
