P: Implementation of Alt text and Extended Description fields is incomplete

The Accessibility fields Alt Text and Extended Description in the Metadata panel's IPTC tagset were added to LR 13.1, but the implementation is incomplete:

 

1. In the Library Filter bar and smart collections, they aren't searchable via Any Searchable Field, Searchable Metadata, or Searchable IPTC (like the other fields in the IPTC tagset).

 

2. In the SDK, the method photo:getFormattedMetadata() doesn't support the keys "altTextAccessibility" and "extDescrAccessibility".

 

3. The Lightroom Classic Programmers Guide should document the tagset field ids "com.adobe.altTextAccessibility" and "com.adobe.extDescrAccessibility", in two sections:

@Rikk Flohr: Photography, the current behavior is clearly not as-designed. The method photo:getFormattedMetadata () returns every other IPTC field shown in the Metadata panel. Obviously, the developer forgot to update a table used by that method -- a simple bug.

@Rikk Flohr: Photography, items 2 and 3 of this bug report were implemented, but item 1 (making the new fields searchable) wasn't. Should I file a new bug report?
