Well, indirectly it is mentioned: "similar to mode 5". Mode 5 does not clear 
the bss either. The bss/tpa is only cleared when you actually load a program. 
Mode 7 cannot do that, since it does not know the actual bss length of the 
program to execute, only the length of the tpa that is allocated.

Right, that should be fixed.

Yes, thats strange. Some other modes like 104 and 200 are documented (which 
were IMHO introduced later), but 7 isn't.
