I investigated this and found out that texdoctk.dat has not changed
between TL 2005 and TL 2007, but there are considerable changes between
teTeX 3.0 and TL: Both deletions and addition.

Some of them might be renamings, some correspond to material which has
been dropped from TeX Live, but some others I cannot explain.  There are
164 deletions and 204 additions, the diff starts with:

+++ texdoctk.dat-texlive.allfiles.unique        2007-05-18 10:47:05.000000000 +0200
@@ -1,333 +1,374 @@
  -2-: at beginning,

So there are probably false positives, but what about abstract, accents,
acronym, aeguill?

The filelists were created with 

cut -d ';' -f 3 texdoctk/texdoctk.dat | \
sed -e '/^\(#\|@\)/ d;s at .*/@@;s@[.]\(dvi\|pdf\)@@' | \
sort -u > ../texdoctk.dat.allfiles
