I think that one reason is when functions don't have the exact same functionality as the ML functions.

What do people think about (if there is a case where the function has a reason to not be the same as the matlab function) putting an empty function that just spits out an error and has help text pointing to the octave function? That strikes me as something without much difficulty and it would help people transition code to Octave.

I see at:
that there is a compatibility table e.g.
  use weibull_*
but why put users through the effort? After installing octave and trying some matlab code to see if it would work, octave couldn't find functions like fcdf.m. I had to find free sources on the web such as
and write my own fcdf.m before I found f_cdf.m
