I am also one who normally feels that anything easily scripted doesn't really need to be added, but in this case, I also agree that it would be better to have some $command ($iscmd maybe) check. Because it IS so heavily used, this is one of those times when it would make the most sense to have it added even though it can be scripted easily. It's also something that can be added with *very* minimal time or effort and doesn't break any existing scripts. That's why it's worth adding. Other types of requests that take a lot of time, aren't used often, break scripts, *and* are easily scripted aren't worth doing.
