'VBoxManage registerimage' options not in help

In the vbox-helpfile, there's no help on any of the registerimage option. There's only a link to the GUI, but as the GUI doesn't support any option either, no further help is given.

This is the only help you can get, through the commandline:

VBoxManage registerimage disk|dvd|floppy <filename>

[-type normal|immutable|writethrough] (disk only)

Especially any description (anywhere in the software) for the immutable and writethrough option is welcome so we can actually use these options.

Actually, immutable and write-trough function is described here: 5.2. Virtual Disk Image (VDI) files (version 2.0.2).

So what is requested: create a direct link from "8.10. VBoxManage registerimage / unregisterimage" to "5.2. Virtual Disk Image (VDI) files"
