The changes to the ELisp manual completely removed the documentation
of global-set-key and other "legacy" functions, AFAICT.  I don't think
we can do that: the code which uses those will remain with us for the
years to come, and Lisp programmers should be able to read and
understand what these functions do.  It is okay to say "don't use
those in new code" (as you already did say), but we should put back
the documentation of those few functions.  There aren't too many of
them, and their documentation is quite short, so it isn't a big deal
to have them in the manual.
