That's the list. It will require a line-by-line code scan to figure all this stuff out. Creating such a list would probably take almost as long as actually fixing the docs.
I don't think that the documentation changes should be a determining factor in switching to OpenRC. If we are going to endorse using OpenRC, the more relevant issues are the ones regarding its future development. The documentation can be updated in due time. Of course, that's just my opinion.
