rcorder document BEFORE and plural REQUIRES:, PROVIDES:, and KEYWORDS:

I was going to document BEFORE in rcorder.8 but looking at code I also saw 
support for plural PROVIDES:, REQUIRES:, and KEYWORDS:.

What was or is the plan for those plural words?

From looking at source, they appear to be identical to the singular 
versions? Are they just historical? I don't see any use of them by NetBSD 
or various branches of FreeBSD.

As for documenting BEFORE ... I read "This allows scripts to be removed 
without editing the barrier scripts."

The BEFORE condition can be used to fine-tune the ordering.
