Well, undocumented 'features' always create problems, see this thread 
and protected packages in yum. As they are undocumented people argue 
about them etc. Include them i the documentation, and everyone knows 
about it.

Regarding 'real world'. Correct, that's why I wrote "...if they are not 
documented, then it is a documentation bug.", and that's how it should 
be treated.
