Not at all.  Have you tried it?  There is nothing similar anywhere, AFAIK.  It
is not like `C-x b' (current bindings, all maps) or `C-h m' (mode description -
variable and always incomplete wrt a keymap).  Try finding the keys bound in a
minibuffer keymap, in a human-readable form.

The closest thing you have is for a prefix key: `C-x C-h'.  The point with `C-h
M-k' is to "see" the bindings for a given keymap variable.  (Yes, that's
probably more useful for Emacs programmers than the average Emacs user.)

That could be useful too.  It's not either/or.

When you look for the doc about a command (including `r-e-b'), why not have
immediately a set of links to its doc in the manuals (with the manual names and
nodes in the links).
