Sorry I wasn't clear...

The explicit list starts at NSS_Init.

The links above that point to explicit documentation I used to create 
the lists. That documentation includes some deprecated functions, so I 
pointed those out. They probably should not be part of the API.

I was hoping to get some comments from the rest of the NSS team on 
whether or not this list is appropriate, particularly whether or not the 
deprecated list of functions are correct.
