I have been looking through a selection of newer and older documents and haven't yet found one without a meticulous history in the metadata panel on the righthand side of the page. There might well be the occasional omission, although I haven't seen any. If you have found some, letting the RIPE NCC staff know so that they can fix them is the right thing to do. Just asserting that there are many examples where there isn't a history is unhelpful.
