Then I suggest the following modified wording of that paragraph:

  Although called @dfn{agent expression}, because they originally
  referred to the target-side debugging agent (@pxref{Agent}), these
  expressions can be used in conjunction with many unrelated
  @value{GDBN} features, such as expressions used in tracepoints for
  data collection, expressions used in breakpoint condition evaluation,
  etc.  Note that the expressions may also denote registers and objects
  in memory---structures or arrays, for example---whose values
  @value{GDBN} should record.
