Perhaps you're reading Qt 5.1.x docs? MouseArea::drag::threshold is a new property that was added in September. The documentation is there in the latest snapshot: http://doc-snapshot.qt-project.org/qt5-release/qml-qtquick-mousearea.html

QQuickText::renderType was indeed missing from the docs. It has been fixed in Qt 5.2.0:
- https://bugreports.qt-project.org/browse/QTBUG-35018
- https://codereview.qt-project.org/#change,72391
