It hasn't been dropped, it just hasn't been written.  ;-( 
There is a general level of incompleteness in the API
document which we are aware of and are working to correct
(albiet more slowly than we'd like).

Assigning to Greg since he spent more time developing the
buffer API than anyone else.

The documentation for this should be added to the
release21-maint and release22-maint branches and the
development trunk.
