Well, partly because I like the approach that yields the results in the most usable fashion and partly because it is the least impact approach. We already call show formats via the HashTypeChecker handler, so it would be just a matter of adding a couple more lines to support this for Jumbo and not start an attack just to get that piece of info. I guess it sums up to being technically elegant, even if just for Jumbo.

I added the task for sprint 2.3 which would be mostly jumbo work.
