Summary0000749: Documentation doesn't state that clarifying the parser's choice activity only runs for certain actions
DescriptionThe clarifying the parser's choice of something activity only happens when the parser has disambiguated a command for an action applying to one thing (or to a topic and a thing). It does not happen after disambiguating a command for an action applying to two things, to a thing and a topic, or (I think) to any other combination of things and values. But this is not clear from the text in ch.17.28 and it is not clear from default output either.
Minimal Source Text To Reproduce
The Lab is a room.

A foo bar is in the Lab. A foo quux is in the Lab. 

Does the player mean doing something to the foo bar: it is very likely.
For clarifying the parser's choice of something: say "KABOOM!".

Test me with "take foo / tie foo to foo".
