No, it wouldn't be too much ballast, as long as each new entry gives some
idea of the application and mentions symmetric functions. The existing
sequences that don't mention symmetric functions also need to have comments

Maybe no one would ever look them up directly, but if they're researching
symmetric functions, they would be grateful if those came up in the results.
