Are there any plans to expose NPC information to the API?

What particular information would people want if this was added?

/dons his Wowpedia hat

My wishlist would include, roughly in order of importance:
  • Actual location as expressable on a map
  • Associated quests (either as a target or starting/ending)
  • Drop rates
  • Abilities
  • Faction affiliation (more than just Horde/Alliance)
  • If tamable, which pet family

A list of what they sell would be nice.

Locations of things that guards will direct you to or that can be tracked like mailboxes, repair vendors, class trainers, profession trainers, etc without having to find a guard to ask or fly around tracking them on the minimap. Some places I've found it difficult to locate what I needed and there weren't any guards around to ask, so I ended up on wowhead searching for a location. Would just be really convenient if we could access the information via the map or have it exposed to the API so addons could incorporate it.

My #1 item would be drops.

I very much miss the dungeon information that existed in the old Armory, that allowed me to very easily link a piece of gear to a raid boss. You'd go through the dungeon and boss XML files to find out what item loot for that boss came from, and then you'd be able to link that information to an item to assign it to the correct boss for a dungeon. I'd LOVE to have that back.
