The status line format should be designed to support those variants to allow a "logical consistency check" of the communication with GnuPG like a message digest allows consistency checking for a cryptographic message. I guess it would be ease for the GnuPG-hardcore developers to define, which fields are required to perform a thorough consistency check.
