Yes, that's my opinion too, but I never searched for more information.  
To search in TeX you can use on the command line

	texdoc -s <some thing>

and then type y and the number of the document that could likely have  
what you're looking for. It is recommended here to have a shell alias  
(an useful and customised command) to easily display the one or other  
of the listed documents.

One thing can be done with MacTeX: first TeXShop or the Spotlight  
importer is installed, than TeX Live follows. This might produce  
better results with Spotlight.
