Personally I think this is a bad move, and the manual is the place
where the index should live.  The manual serves a different purpose
from a live running emacs.  Any decently documented emacs package has
a `Key Index' section in their manuals. just look at your info pages
for any emacs mode.

People print commands of emacs cheat sheets after all. 

It requires additional work in keeping with sync with the code, yes
but that is a case for doing the additional work, not throwing the
section out.
