Manpage for rpc.ypupdated?

With all the recent changeover in namespace for rpc/yp stuff, there's been 
a lot moved around, but in all my searches, the ypd.upupdated daemon is 
completely undocumented.   (even with a grep through the rest of the man 
directories provides no mention).

Near as I can tell, it allows nis clients to make updates to the NIS maps 
(which is a dangerous functionality)...shouldn't there be SOME docs for 

If this should be opened as a bug, let me know.
