Why?  If you already know what method you want to look up, just use
"C-h f" or "i" in Info.  If you do NOT know the name of the method,
how do you know which method to click on?

You look over the list, and either notice the word you wanted inside one of the function names, or look at the names one by one, in the worst case, and recall that one of them is what you need. It might be a different skill, but it's one we already have (by the necessity of dealing with a number of other languages).

Looking over a list of 50-60 entries like that takes only a few seconds, and that's longer than dealing with the manual.
