That sounds like a good solution and would certainly meet our needs.

Should we raise a New Feature issue in JIRA to track and discuss this
further?
That way you can have a think about how you'd prefer to see it implemented,
and
in the mean time we can put together a small patch toward this general idea
and
either submit that on JIRA, or allow you to come up with your own and we can
rebase our API on top of that later.
