I'm not sure these can be considered final as they do not document a whole host
of behaviours (for example, there is neither a complete list of error returns
nor any weasel-words about undocumented error returns)

Unfortunately I'm way too busy to help with this at this moment in time but I
do want to see the documentation firmed up (And also get a good idea of what
still remains to be implemented).
