FWIW, I did not understand the "functional" and "scripting" terms that you
use on this page.

I've understood now, from, that you mean
"results: value" and "results: output".  For me it would be better if you
said that instead of "functional" and "scripting", as the former is what I
can actually type in my Org files.
