Following your argumentation, ffmpeg should not document any of x264
options and instead refer to videolan docs. But ffmpeg does document it.
So on which rules most of x264 options and its values are documented and
some are not even listed (e.g. most of obviously implemented x264
profiles and levels)?

Unfortunately the documentation  there is even much less verbose than on
(Or does anyone know a link to a complete documentation?)
