We'll be providing a final list of component that will make it into 4.0.0.Final sometime in early December. However at the moment you are correct, the ordering list did not make the schedule, but that does not mean it is off the plans for future releases.
OrderingList, and listShuttle may also mike good examples for composite components using the items available in RichFaces 4.0 already. So you may see a blog and some examples around this before you see them as an "official" component.
Hope this helps.
