I agree. I was surprised to see that still in the spec.

The comments made elsethread about returning both sets of data through
the blame API express a valid concern. This should be fairly easy to
accommodate; the command-line client can just filter this output, while
other clients can cache it or hide it pending a checkbox or whatever
else they please.
