Subject: ForceArray needs to stay


It came to my ears ;-) there is some discussion that the ForceArray
attribute would be redundant as already implied by Array and could be

That is not the case.

ForceArray is a calculation context attribute, not a parameter type. The
ForceArray attribute is described at

ForceArray forces all context of the argument and the expression that
results in that argument into array mode / matrix evaluation, regardless
whether the function is part of an array/matrix formula expression.

See 3.3 Non-Scalar Evaluation (aka 'Array expressions')
2) Matrix evaluation.
