perlfunc.pod starts

    =head1 DESCRIPTION

    The functions in this section can serve as terms in an expression.

Neither given nor when can be used as terms in an expression. Hence they
don't belong in perlfunc. (perlfunc contains neither foreach, roughly
analogous to given, nor if)

These were added by a patch applied in commit 15a348aa1f233f84, post perl
5.14.0

I'm not sure if the documentation added should be moved to a different
pod, or whether it should simply be removed, as all it's acting as is
summaries of other pods.
