You are correctly assuming that these modules are not meant to be a 
public API,
and hence are not documented.
The plan is that this code will be moved into  a new application called 
and made available as a public API. (Probably slightly remodulated).  I 
can however
not give you any time when this will be ready, I am just saying it is 
planed for a future
