--list-keys and --show-keyring

The manpage of GPG tells:
Causes --list-keys, --list-public-keys, and
--list-secret-keys to display the name of the
keyring a given key resides on. This is only
useful when you're listing a specific key or set
of keys. It has no effect when listing all keys.
Why is it not inactive when listing all keys?
Is it because a key might be present in different keyrings at the same time and thus would be listed twice (and stupid programs would break)?
Then, why not allow when using "--expert" or something.
If some program is interessted in that information, why only reveal it the long and hard way?
