I think in order to know what should be done, we have to take into account
what it is used for.  IIRC defvaralias was introduced specifically to deal
with renaming variables and deprecating the old name, and AFAIK there hasn't
been any other use of it yet.

So it makes sense for C-h v to omit the "obsolete" name.
