Am I correct in understanding "given" here to mean "described"?  If so,
just say "described".

} +Options must appear in a group before any non-option arguments;

"Options (and their individual arguments, if any) ..." ?  Also the whole
document could probably use a consistency check, because sometimes we
use the term "flags" to differentiate command options from setopts, and
other times we don't.  Maybe it would suffice to point out that "flags"
and "options" are the same thing and we use flags when there would be
confusion (such as when describing the "-o option" flag of "emulate").

Otherwise this all looks accurate.
