Yes, what bugs me about the documentation of so many of the new 
functions is phrases like:

Standard mouse-related event specifications include:

This comes from the definitive documentation of this function, and yet 
the wording implies that the subsequent list is incomplete!

Even a simple re-phrasing would help a bit (if that is what is meant):

The following mouse-related event specifications are designed for 
general use, though other values are used by Mathematica internally.
