I read it as: read the 2.14 and apply. And the 2.14 says that not
special-builtins or other utility _shall not_ make the assignment
remaining in effect. 

It seems that you read it as "what is true for special-builtins" is true
for whatever function. But this reading---again for _me_: I'm not an
english native speaker---contradicts precisely what 2.14 2) says.
