No. Handbook doesn't provide information on every useflag. For this you have 
use{.local.,.}desc in PORTDIR/profiles/. And again, if you missread my previous 
post - there's no way to standarize *every* useflag and tell user "flag foo does 
bar". It's developer who should decide on behalf of user what's the best 
configuration. And user has always choice to disable some useflags and create 
his own configuration for his requirements.
