I thought these were scheduled for change ages ago so they did not
augment built-in prototypes. Was that just forgotten or is the FAQ
maintenance simply on hold for the time being?

The FAQ maintainer has abandoned his duties, without giving notice.
According to Google, that ID has posted nothing since February.
