I strongly disagree.  gpg-agent is not a emacs feature, but a gnupg
feature, and gnupg is utilized by emacs.  It's not in the scope of the
Emacs manual to teach users everything they need to know to make
sensible use of OpenPGP Mail encryption.  Just as it isn't the duty of
the Emacs manual to tell people about make, only because we have M-x
