-1 from me as well; I see no reason to encourage use of bad metadata,
given mechanisms to get correct metadata exist (running "setup.py
egg_info", as others have pointed out).  I understand there are
perceived uses for such data, but it's just as available for those
uses as for tools like pip and buildout.
