I think the manual is fine, now. The conversion from "htmlize" to
"htmfontify" has stalled, however. I asked for some guidance about it
a few weeks ago. I now wait for an answer.

One potential issue I can think of is Babel libraries, i.e., libraries
used to execute source code in an Org buffer. Typically, such a library
relies on an external Elisp library, e.g., "ob-scheme" relies on
"geiser", "ob-shen" relies on "inf-shen", "ob-R" on "ess", and so on.
These external libraries are free, but I don't know if they qualify as
"ought to be part of Emacs". I assume not, since Emacs cannot provide
a mode for every language out there.
