Error in ASSUAN description: GET_PASSPHRASE

I think there is an error in the description of GET_PASSPHRASE on

The synopsis is:

GET_PASSPHRASE [--data] [--check] [--no-ask] [--repeat[=N]] [--
qualitybar] cache_id [error_message prompt description]

which would mean that "cache_id" is the only mandatory parameter which 
is consistent with the description:

"cache_id is expected to be a string used to identify a cached 
passphrase. Use a X to bypass the cache. With no other arguments the 
agent returns a cached passphrase or an error."

But with gpg-connect-agent I get:

> GET_PASSPHRASE 03C7C358A842126450C104BA486B17AB3F96AD8E
