And you know that if you leave it undocumented, SOMEBODY out there will try to use it, then file a bug stating the the port (or whatever) is nonfunctional.
 
I like the "Do not use" appendage, too. "Belt and suspenders," so to speak.

I agree (vehemently :-) with Sally -- do not leave things undocumented!

A less wordy phrase I often use is "For future use."  Makes it look
intentional, planned, and conveys that nothing will happen if you use it at
now.
