The error_quark functions are not documented, because the convention is
to use the corresponding G_CONVERT_ERROR macro, which is documented.

These are just implementation details of the g_return_if_fail() and 
g_assert() macros.

See above.

Similar to the error_quark functions, these are by convention used
via the corresponding _TYPE macros, which are admittedly not documented
either, at least not individually. The GObject tutorial that has been
merged into the GObject API docs explains the "standard macros" used
for all GObject types.
