Right.  control-spec.txt is indeed an official document.  There are
indeed some configuration options listed there that aren't on the
manual page.  This is because these options are only useful to writers
of controllers, not to general Tor users.

Also, please realize that if there's something that isn't in the
documentation, that isn't because we're trying to make it a "HIDDEN
configuration" option.  We don't do that.  It's probably because we're
lame and forgot to document it.  Just ask, or use the source. :)
