Any package in the archive that has an undocumented.7 link should, by
long-standing policy already have a bug filed against it saying that it
is missing some man pages. Of course not all do, since some maintainers
forget to do it, but it would be pretty silly to mass-file another bug
against such packages saying essentially the same thing.

FWIW, I can turn dh_undocumented into a no-op whenever people feel it is a
good idea to do so and that will probably remove a good number of the
undocumented.7 links eventually.
