error (?) in --with-colons --edit-key order

If you do gpg --with-colons --list-key foo

The output lists:

The Primary Key
User IDs

Which makes sense becuase the User IDs are bound to
the primary key, and follows the general rule that
each line (eg. a fingerprint when listing
fingerprints) refers to the previous key or subkey.

But if using

gpg --with-colons --edit-key foo

the listing is:

The Primary Key
User IDs

It is just a small inconsistency, but perhaps one
worth fixing for the new version?

Best, N.
