I've noticed that this has gotten generally better over the years. In particular, there is much better support for "man <configfilename>" than there used to be. (Doesn't Debian *require* man pages?)
Of those items that do seem to be missing man pages, commands related to the various DE's seem the worst offenders. Presumably, the DE's are so awesome that the user doesn't need man pages. Then again, if that's the case, they should probably just remove Konsole, Gnome-Terminal, etc. from the official packages.
One last note: 'info' and its authors should be taken out and shot.
