Hm.  I thought we were going to provide a full map in the
documentation, so that Info-map users can find what keys do what?  This
information belongs there.

That's true, however we agreed on the fact that we'd use the lynx-like
map for all key bindings in the documentation and giving the function
name doesn't really add information in that case.  As someone
previously observed, Info-map users are probably skilled enough to use
something like `C-h m' to find by themselves the right bindings; or
they can read the Info-map related nodes in the documentation.

It's just useless, I think.  Yamaoka-san, what do you think?
