The name of the section sounds too long to me.  How about this

  * Leading Arguments::            Leading arguments to commands

"type", not "do".  Also, please use @kbd instead of @code for commands
the user is supposed to type.

> +arguments typed explicitely on the command line.

Finally, please refill the text so that each line is shorter than 79
