This is a tricky point, but on balance, I think it's better to have complete documentation even if it draws people's attention to things they should overlook.

Brushing up the old "ref" material since 2008 for the "implementation" manual has introduced some bias towards vintage operations. E.g. some readers have pointed out the relative insignificance of the res_inst_tac family just after I had reconstructed that section -- and they were right about it.
