    9 I was with the impression that the above details about the filesize meta are available as docs (in a docblock) added with #49412, but seems that's not the case. This needs to be fixed. Making it available in the REST API should also come with a good explanation of how unreliable it is and what are the expected use cases. Frankly I don't see any use cases, adding something with no use cases is generally a no-go.
