Sure.  But it's not directly relevant to the problem we're trying to
solve.  Or, put another way, it's broader than just this section.  I want
to be sure we don't get sidetracked into that larger effort while
addressing missing documentation for standard fields.

We already talk about udeb in various places (shlibs, for instance).  This
isn't a new problem.

I don't see an open bug about udebs in general off-hand.  If I'm not
missing something, it certainly seems reasonable to open one.
