Information about Suggested Edits completely missing from FAQs and privileges pages

I noticed today that I got +2 reputation for making an edit suggestion that was approved on SuperUser.

This surprised me a bit, as I didn't recall seeing it anywhere, so I consulted the FAQ, which lists the different ways of gaining/losing reputation in the What is reputation? section, only to not find anything that could explain a +2 gain there.

It wasn't until I found "Edit a question (from other user) and get +2 rep?" here on Meta, that I realized what was going on.

In short, the +2 reputation gain from an accepted edit suggestion is missing from the FAQ.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

The edit suggestion system is currently under testing and has not been officially announced. Any details about how it works are under flux and can change at any moment as the SO team tries out various tweaks. As such, it's a bit early to write FAQ entries on it :)
