[webkit-dev] Tracking WebKit changes needed documentation

I was discussing with some Mozillians at the MDN work week end and we 
were wondering how to keep track of changes in WebKit that require some 
documentation. For example, the Mozilla Bugzilla system has some 
keywords like "dev-doc-needed" and "dev-doc-complete" that MDN people 
can use to generate pages like


so that people in charge of the documentation know what they must 
document or update.

In particular, we mentioned the case of MathML in WebKit for which new 
attributes/elements are currently being implemented and the browser 
compatibility tables will need to be updated e.g.

At the moment, I suggested to rely on the "WebExposed" keyword to find 
these kind of changes, but I'm not really sure what is the particular 
policy for that keyword to be set. For example, can I add this 
"WebExposed" keyword when I implement new MathML features? Other than 
MathML, are other new features systematically tagged with that keyword?

Do you have any suggestion for Bugzilla parameters that could help MDN 
people (and that the administrator of WebKit Bugzilla should add if 
necessary)? For example a keyword similar to "dev-doc-complete" to 
indicate when the documentation is done or to "target milestone" to 
indicate in which Safari version the changes will happen?
