Reserved username prefixes

Is there a reason we don't have all the reserved prefixes listed in FAQ 127? Currently only ex_ is listed as an example. The information is publicly listed in the Support Wiki and in a learnsupport entry. The FAQ could be updated to say:

LiveJournal reserves the prefixes "ex_", "ext_", "lj_" and "s_" for internal use. These prefixes will produce an error of "Sorry, that is a reserved username."

Not necessarily the most vital info, but there's no harm in adding it as far as I can tell.

(ETA: Sorry if this comes off as snarky, I was legitimately asking if there's a reason it's not listed that I'm not aware of.)
