Citing from arp(4):

     ARP entries may be added, deleted or changed with the arp(8) utility.
     Manually-added entries may be temporary or permanent, and may be
     ``published'', in which case the system will respond to ARP requests for
     that host as if it were the target of the request.

Is your suggestion to add "This feature is nowadays known as "proxy arp." to
that paragraph?
