The ellipsis object is not listed in the base help pages!

help(`+`) # this works - help on arithmetic operators
help("+") # also works
help(`...`) # fails with Error: '...' used in an incorrect context
help("...") # fails also with No documentation for '...' in specified packages and libraries: you could try '??...'

Do you know where I can find some documentation about it?
