info directory incomplete?

I'm fairly new to Slackware (using 14) and noticed I had to edit /usr/share/info/dir myself to add entries for the emacs lisp reference and org mode documentation. The info files were present. They just didn't have entries in dir. Was this an oversite or is it by design, say to slim down the info directory to a most universally useful subset?

Some packages probably do not include code in the which adds the info page entry to the 'dir' file.
You can add individual pages like this:
/usr/bin/install-info --info-dir=/usr/info /usr/info/filename
