Sure.  But keep in mind that the manual currently contains a lot of
information which is common to all AUCTeX modes.  So this stuff does not
necessarily have to be repeated.  And if there nevertheless is a need
for repetition, it should be very brief.

This sounds useful.  The proposed key binding also seems to be an
appropriate choice since since the other bindings prefixed with `C-c
C-u' all deal with updating menus and nodes.  It might still be a bit
awkward to "shift" it from an insertion-related binding to one related
to updates.  Would anybody else on this list object if we introduce the
