Most code is typed only once but read many times...
There might be a reason why both functions needs to be run - why?
Put the reason somewhere in the code.

Do you have a corporate policy that every functions needs to have full
documentation? Then it might be the policy that is in error...
Might not be necessary to document with 20 lines of comments...

DoXZ = fun () -> doX(), doZ(), ok end,

online -> DoXZ();
busy -> doY()
