Found the negative answer to that, at https://www.haiku-os.org/legacy-docs/bebook/LegalNotice.html

I too would like to see everything documented in the Haiku Book.  I guess the easiest way is to start a Kernel Kit docs page, have it begin with a link to the BeBook Kernel Kit and then write the full function/class/globals descriptions for the parts that are different.
