Bug XML output questions

I know Bugzilla's XML output has evolved over time; I'm not holding 
anyone here responsible for its shortcomings :-)

Which of these are bugs, which are things we'd have loved to fix but 
it's too late now, and which are intended?

* cclist_accessible and reporter_accessible are not in the XML at all if 
their value is 0.

* keywords is a comma-separated list, unlike other multi-valued fields, 
which get one tag pair per value.

* It doesn't tell you if custom fields are single-valued, or are 
multiple-valued fields which happen to just contain a single value. You 
have to call the legal_values API for each field.

* There's no way of finding out what possible flags can be set, only the 
ones which are set.

* Same as the question above, but for groups. (Can legal_values help in 
either of these cases?)

Thanks for any light anyone can shed :-)
