Which meant I got it twice, given I'm on -policy anyway....

I'm not sure I agree with your argument that undocumented(7) is a
disincentive to write a proper manpage, but that would just be
argument by repeated assertion, so I won't go there. 

I still maintain that undocumented(7) serves a useful function (as my
objection said), but perhaps it should be reworded somewhat; maybe we
should encourage people to check the BTS and submit a bug report, or
simply "do submit this as a bug if there isn't an appropriate one
open", since it seems that there often isn't the bug open that
undocumented(7) currently says there is.
