The Change Proposal adopted is this: <http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2010Nov/0042.html>. Its Details section says:

>>> Remove all prose relating to the following link types: index, up, first,  last.

This would include, by my understanding, removal of the Synonyms sections of those definitions, which include the synonyms "top", "contents", "toc", "begin", "start" and "end".

Maciej
