That's a string of four references to get to the info.  I quit reading 
at about one paragraph because by that time it was clear that whoever 
was documenting didn't have my needs in mind.

Yes, having them documented is important.  That's certainly better than 
not having them documented.  However, the user experience should be 
considerably simpler.  It should be a no brainer for previous emacs 
users to use aquamacs.  It shouldn't require several hours of reading 
just to figure out how to do basic things like move forward a sentence.
