I think the problem is that we have two prepositions that apply to the argument, and “pick the second one” leaves the base name feeling unbalanced. (Remember that we allow referring to a method by its basename alone when using it as a function value.)

At that point the argument label doesn’t add anything that isn’t already provided by the type.

"Otherwise, if the first argument forms part of a grammatical phrase, omit its label."

The “otherwise” comes after "When the first argument forms part of a prepositional phrase”, but in this case it forms part of two prepositional phrases.
