The coverage work was initially conducted in order to assess how much 
funding the testing effort would need to reach various coverage levels. 
Since the whole "get funding" part didn't work out, no one has been 
updating the coverage stuff.

If anyone wishes to take over the code and do something with it that 
maintains more up to date coverage information (keeping in mind that of 
course it is always very heuristic) it is certainly welcome!
