In :

   A function definition introduces the function name in the
   current symbol table. The value of the function name has a
   type that is recognized by the interpreter as a user-defined
   function.  This value can be assigned to another name which
   can then also be used as a function.  This serves as a general
   renaming mechanism

Maybe "aliasing" is a better term than "renaming" here, since the original function name can still be used after the "renaming".
