no rests in tablature?

In lilypond 1.6.6 (and earlier), it seems that rests are not output in
tablature.  It would be nice to do this; as it stands, I end up writing
them in by hand :).

Key changes get a warning, too.  Even though they're irrelevant (I
guess) to tablature, it would be nice to accept them, so the same input
could be used, as in the example from the manual.
