Early in my AIX career, I had this same question. Being on-site at a paying customer's location and not wanting to foul up a production machine, I made an excuse to call my AIX support for clarification; which was SupportNet at the time (later merged with Gates Arrow). The support person there wasn't sure either, they ended up conferencing IBM on the line to clear it up. <div>&nbsp;</div> It's interesting that many years and software levels later these little annoyances can still be found.

I suppose the feedback which comes, especially through support calls, can help. The example I've highlighted is certainly not a bug - but a simple enhancement which would save beginners some frustration. <div>&nbsp;</div> The "documentation" provided by blogs, developerWorks articles, wikis and forums can fill in the gaps.
