"What commands aren't allowed in a transaction?" is still a logical
question to ask though, so it would be nice if we had such a list
hanging around.

Is there a standard way these commands test to see if they're in a
transaction block? If there is, perhaps something could be created that
would pull that info out of the code so that we didn't have to maintain
the list by hand. It might also be possible to do this with some SGML
