"ElGamal Encrypt-only keys"

(please CC dacrick@cwcom.net in any replies, thanks)

Looking at the "OpenPGP" document in the source distribution,
I found this paragraph:

* Neither PGP 5.x nor PGP 6.0 recognize ElGamal Encrypt
and Sign keys. They only handle ElGamal Encrypt-only keys.

On the key generation menu we can select:

   (1) DSA and ElGamal (default)
   (2) DSA (sign only)
   (4) ElGamal (sign and encrypt)

Am I therefore correct in assuming that "ElGamal Encrypt-only
keys" refers to the ElGamal keypair part of (1) above?
