Unlike the other flags, they are not intuitive.  As
they are exposed to the end-user (versus the
programmer), it seems useful to describe them in
section 1 of the manual pages.

I did.  I suspect sometimes what's "obvious" ends up
being subjective, though.  'Cm' looked to me to be
intended for use with non-dash-preceded flags, not as
arguments to the command.  I might even have
considered 'Ar' more "obvious".
