Even if we had such an API, enforcing it as a requirement for a package's
inclusion in GNU ELPA -- otherwise, most packages would probably ignore it --
would be rather heavy-weight. Further, the result would likely be a large
volume of information for you to ingest. I don't see the cost/benefit ratio
adding up for an API like this.
