I guess we can throw it in the exceptional functions category:

My fear with putting it along side ST_Transform and others is that users may get confused and use the wrong one. We can of course link to it from ST_Transform in the see Also and make mention of it.

There's also a proposal to expose the functionality with an override of ST_Transform:

I'd consider this to be a "private" function that's lacking a starting underscore. Since its functionality is exposed through ST_Transform (which is documented), it seems like it would be confusing to document this one.

True since r14698 (2.3.0)

So can we close this out then as a wontfix?

I'd be ok to close this IFF the manual section about ST_Transform contains info about postgis_transform_geometry for use with older versions. So a 1.5 or 2.0 or 2.1 or 2.2 user would know how to do that kind of transform.
