Re expiration_date: give me a scenario where that will end up in the
working copy. That might clarify somewhat.

Re the absolute path. Is there really a point in showing it? When will it
be something other than the absolute path of the locked item?

They should print the same info as far as possible. But if you look at the
info command as a whole, it will have to print different information
depending whether the information comes from the WC and the repsitory. For
example, there is no schedule in the repo.
