Access to Special: pages via API

Russell Blau
Are there any plans to provide API hooks for getting the contents of the
remaining Special: pages?  We have list=allpages for Special:AllPages,
list=allcategories for Special:Categories and list=recentchanges for
Special:RecentChanges, for example (and some others), but at present there
is no way of accessing the contents of many pages such as:

Special:BrokenRedirects
Special:CrossNamespaceLinks
Special:DeadendPages
Special:DoubleRedirects
Special:LongPages
Special:AncientPages
Special:LonelyPages
Special:FewestRevisions
Special:WithoutInterwiki
Special:ProtectedPages
Special:ProtectedTitles
Special:ShortPages
Special:UncategorizedCategories
Special:UncategorizedImages
Special:UncategorizedPages
Special:UncategorizedTemplates
Special:UnusedCategories
Special:UnusedImages
Special:UnusedTemplates
Special:WantedCategories
Special:WantedFiles
Special:WantedPages
Special:MostLinkedCategories
Special:MostImages
Special:MostLinked
Special:MostLinkedTemplates
Special:MostCategories
Special:MostRevisions

Granted, some of these are more useful than others, but the information is
accessible via the UI, so why not via the API?
