I'd post these questions on the Ardour forum or on the Ardour IRC.
The Ardour dev is usually around there.

The doc at the site you mention is under construction, so it is indeed 
incomplete, the site mentioned in another reply is pretty cursory 
as well. I don't think either is meant to be a user manual or tutorial,
but are meant to be reference docs. I have found a few tutorial 
videos over at Vimeo to be helpful. But, I've found hanging out on 
the Ardour IRC chan. listening and askiong question to be very useful.
