IEEEtran missing documentation

Hmm. Seems a bit counterproductive for what is likely a widely used
class, but I guess policy is policy.  It would be helpful if texdoc
IEEEtran found that file if the main documentation didn't exist. But
this may not be possible. As it stands now, texdoc IEEEtran brings up
testflow_ctl_A4.pdf which is not particularly helpful.
