you *are* correct, of course, but your list is not complete.

take-n: func [n /local spec] [
spec: copy 
for i 1 n 1 [
append spec to word! append copy "a" to string! i
func spec reduce [:reduce append reduce [to lit-word! append copy "take"
to string! n] spec]
do/next [do take-n 4 1 2 3 4 5]
== [[take4 1 2 3 4] ]
shows, that Do took 5 arguments here, IMO.
