I wonder if it is feasible to query the documentation center for e.g build-in functions that contain a "Neat Examples"-section in their respective documentation page.

Another functionality that would be nice is a text base search that could, for instance, be used to find topics of interest in the documentation (e.g the history of UNIX distributions from the Application section of GraphLayout)

WolframLanguageData can be used for this.

Select[(Association@#)["NeatExamples"] > 0 &]@
  EntityValue[WolframLanguageData[], "DocumentationExampleCounts", 
   "EntityAssociation"] // Keys

I tried to do this with an implicit entity filtering on "DocumentationExampleCounts" but I could not get the filter to cooperate. This would have used a smaller download.

Hope this helps.
