As a "normal dev", I think core elements like filesrc, fakesink, etc. _should_ 
be documented in the API reference, preferably in a separate chapter of their 

Not only does that emphasise that those elements are part of the gstreamer 
core and can therefore be expected to be present in any sane installation, 
but it would also allow for examples and comments in the docs that point out 
some of the neat things you can do with those elements and how to do it.

gst-inspect is great, but only if you already know what you're looking for. 
For example, the 'handoff' signal is really extremely useful, but there is no 
way to find out what it does just by reading the docs (as far as I can see).
