The new "using index condition" optimization (index condition pushdown) isn't documented in EXPLAIN.  I was able to find it mentioned on page 32 and 33 of Timour's slides from the user's conference this year (http://conferences.oreillynet.com/presentations/mysql07/katchaounov_timour.pdf)

How to repeat:
See bug #30659 for an example.

Suggested fix:
I'm not sure this optimization is even in any currently released and documented version.  Apologies if it's not documented just because it's too soon :)
