Well, under section "Other Log Files" it mentions even way more obscure options
like ForensicLog, ScriptLogBuffer and more. Should those be removed too, then? 

I do not ask for the option to be detailed on, just for mod_log_config (and its
options, of which BufferedLogs is but one) to be linked under that "Other Log
Files" section. 

I do not think that this is unreasonable request, as the way it is (when even
mod_log_forensic and mod_logio are mentioned but mod_log_config isn't) it looks
like the option doesn't exist at all (I'd actually only found about it by
looking at the source, and then re-searched the web and found other reference
to it).

Also note that BufferedLogs is not so obscure -- it's very useful (I'd almost
say necessary) on higher load servers; for example on our site (many prefork
children, a lots of small and fast hits to serve, and yes we need the logs) the
load average (caused mostly by millions of small write I/O on ext3) dropped
from 10-20 to less than 1-2 just by turning that option on. I'd even recommend
for that option to be On by default in apache

So I hope I've presented my case and would like to ask you to please
reconsider, hence reopening the bug. All I'm asking is to add "mod_log_config"
with "BufferedLogs", "CookieLog" and "TransferLog" to the "Other Log Files"
"Related Modules/Related Directives" box for sake of completeness and helping
others hoping to find that same (extremely useful) directive.

I can make a patch for the webpage if that would help (although I would need
XML source of the webpage to do that, as it looks auto-generated from XML)

Thank you for your time, and I hope you might find it reasonable thing to do.
