According to @otto42 (https://wordpress.slack.com/archives/C02QB8GMM/p1498690532413715) this would be a very small amount of new code in the directory code, and even smaller in core.

It would probably be a bit more code in core, but regardless, we don't need a separate meta ticket for something that would need to be core driven.

If core wants it, we can easily add it. Until then, no need for a meta ticket.

My point is that ultimately, it's a core driven API. We add to the API when core needs it. So, core trac is the best place to address that.
