FS#21929 - Perks, skills and magic effects descriptions about archery

A user reported this in the french community and I mirror it here. According to him, several perks, skills and magic effects affect both bows and crossbows but only bows are mentioned in their descriptions. SSE is also affected.
List of perks, skills and magic effects coming in subsequent comments below. Other Patch Team Projects members advice required.

My only question would be whether there are any perks, skills, or magic effects in the game that actually specifically mention both bows and crossbows in the description. If so, these descriptions probably should be corrected (at least in my opinion).

Even though they're obviously different weapons (in real life), I guess I wouldn't have really thought much about it if crossbows weren't specifically mentioned in the description since they both fall into the archery category as far as the game is concerned.

No, absolutely ALL these ones were designed for Skyrim release date (11/11/11) when the game only had bows. Then Dawnguard came with crossbows...

I'm not sure how practical it would be to update the descriptions since certain things, like overdraw, don't even make sense for crossbows.

IMO, I don't think it's really worth trying to work out new ones for this when the existing ones are getting the job done.
