Maybe calling it a superset would be too much, since you can do
everything possible with elisp with `display-buffer-function'.  The
point is that you can IMO do most common stuff more easily.

Did you read (elisp) Display Action Functions?  It's worth reading and
trying to understand, although it's indeed quite complex and abstract.
Using `display-buffer-alist' is quite comfortable once you got used to
