Unlike undocumented(7) which gets applied to all kinds of stuff, it's
describing things which are overwhelmingly user-level programs, i.e.
section 1-ish pages. I wouldn't see a particular problem with having it
in section 1.

There doesn't *have* to be a bijective mapping from {/bin,/usr/bin} to
/usr/share/man/man1; it merely ought to be injective. :-)
