Note that the current policy forces maintainers to bug themselves
if they use 'undocumented'. So your reason is not a reason (since the
problem would be solved with current policy).
In any case we might need a mass-filing bug regarding packages not
passing lintian check for undocumented and *without* a bug report asking
for a manpage.
