Hmmm ... I'm less than excited about documenting agreed-to-be-broken
behavior in exquisite detail.  Doing so will just encourage people to
rely on it.  It's particularly unfriendly to document it in detail
without pointing out that it's likely to change.

My inclination is to forget about these doc changes and spend our time
on fixing the behavior instead.
