When in doubt, check the default UI code to verify current API usage. Blizzard is generally pretty bad at writing efficient code, but one thing they are good at is using descriptive variable names.
Anyone can edit WoWProgramming's API documentation - you simply need to make an account and start editing.

Edit: This is what I get for replying before reading later posts. Meh.
