I assume he means you should read it *before asking questions*, or at least before suggesting that something is a [BUG?]. It does have an index, one entry of which is

   7.22 Why do lattice/trellis graphics not work?

Reading the FAQ index is no more work than you are asking other people to do, and it will get you an answer even faster. Of course, you *did* get an answer to your question, very quickly, so reading the FAQ may seem inefficient.

Well, the behaviour predates the R implementation and is described in help(xyplot). Obviously no-one except you thinks it it fully intuititve, or it wouldn't be in the FAQ.
