+1, I agree completely. Sorry to further bump an old thread but I was just starting to look at this stuff again and noticed the drastic reduction of the precision.
I always thought that one of the big reasons for the Programmer's Interface was to encourage those wanting to make third party applications to use it rather than the much heftier main page to mine for their info. With the actual front page having double digit precision, programmers are likely to be tempted to start grabbing that again rather than the lighter API pages, thus defeating the purpose all together.
I also totally understand the reason for limiting the precision and applaud the effort taken there but like the others, I don't understand why the same data readily available on the main page can't be made available in the API.
