Target Manual page is "List of Keywords" (reserved.keywords.html).

First, the link of "use" Keyword should not be to "Namespaces" (language.namespaces.html) : almost meanless, 
but strictly, to "Using namespaces: Aliasing/Importing" (language.namespaces.importing.html).

This "use" is used for 
(1) importing a Class in a Namespace & aliasing it,
(2) importing a Namespace,
(3) importing a global Class,
(4) importing a function, & aliasing it,
(5) importing a constant
according to the link page.

This "use" Keyword may be accompanied by "(as of PHP 5.3.0)".

Second, there would exist ADDITIONAL "use" Keyword in the list.
This "use" is used for inheriting variables from the parent scope in closures.

This "use" Keyword should link to "Example #3" in "Anonymous functions" (functions.anonymous.html#example-180".

Expected result:
(See Description)

Actual result:
