What version are you looking at? The docs for 2008.1 off the Perforce 
web site say:

Force flag. Allows the description, modification date, or user of a 
submitted changelist to be edited. Editing a submitted changelist 
requires admin or super access. Superusers and administrators may also 
overwrite read-only fields when using the -f flag.

I'm guessing you're looking at an older version. This feature has been 
there since 2007.1. The text you're quoting is the same as that in the 
2006.2 docs.
