	Wikipedia indicates awk is part of POSIX. (

        Our man page for vi(1) indicates that vi(1) is part of POSIX:

       Nex/nvi is close to IEEE Std1003.2 (``POSIX'').	That document differs
       from historical ex/vi practice in several places; there are changes to
       be made on both sides.

	Shouldn't awk(1) have an appropriate clause to indicate
	it's (non-)adherence to POSIX?

	$ man awk
	Sounds like a good idea
