Scene Graph functions outside of Task node

So according to this, roRegistrySection can only be used in a Task node.  I know previously (at least previous to v8.1) doing something like:
sect = CreateObject("roRegistrySection", "section")

from the init function of a scene would return invalid.  I just tried it on v8.1.0 build 4131 and it seems to work just fine.  Has something changed?  Is there a release note somewhere that I missed?  Was I just lucky or is the documentation incorrect?  Does the list of functions only supported within a Task node need to be updated?
