on page 7:

_How to communicate through your terminal._ When you type to UNIX, the
characters are collected and saved by the system.  The characters will
not be given to the program until you type a return (or new-line), as
described above in _Logging in._

So it seems that bit of whimsy was excised early on.  At least the
pages still have BUGS sections, which I seem to recall DEC found
necessary to expunge at some point!
