In the acsl-boron implementation notes, implemented refers to ACSL
constructions that are supported by Frama-C's kernel, which
essentially means that such specifications will be parsed and
type-checked by Frama-C. It does not say anything about what a
particular plug-in will do about it (to be honest, I don't think that
any plug-in does something sensible with terminates clause at the
moment, but please remember that the Jessie plug-in is only a component
of Frama-C, albeit an important one).

Well, this concerns Jessie-specific constructions, so it seems to me
that Jessie documentation is the appropriate place to mention it.

Best regards,
E tutto per oggi, a la prossima volta.
