commands come in layers:

- general low level  : you can find a list of them in mult-low.lua (i 
sometimes add to them)

- specific low level : like the one you mention, these are normally 
quite stable (read: you can use them as they will stay around), there 
are quite some \doif* ones (no list, one needs to look into the source 
code re;ated to it) ... i have no time to make a list but if someone ...

- frequently used high level commands with low level fast callers : 
\framed sits in this category

- high level commands : lots of \setup, \define, \start and so ... we 
share the systematics as much as possible (also options)

- then there are defined commands (and users can add to them) : specific 
instances of section heads, verbatim, fonts etc

(some of the more obscure commands are described in articles and 
dedicated manuals)
