Minor documentation issues on keywords #286

In the list in section 18 of the specification, & is mentioned as reserved, it is not. OTOH, null is not mentioned, and it IS reserved.


& is reserved for future possible use, the mention in the documentation is for preventing users from using that symbol as identifier in their code. null should be mentioned.


But experimentally, &: 1 is compiled without any problem!


The current Red/System compiler code will be trashed in a few months (Red/System rewrite in Red should start in January), do you think it is worth time and code lines to enforce that?
