[Dovecot] forward flag metadata

In testing the migration from courier-imap to dovecot I've discovered
that the forward flag on messages isn't kept track of in a standard way.

courier-imap seems to keep track of forwarded messages in courierimapkeywords/:list
dovecot seems to add an 'a' flag to the filename.

Unfortunately this 'a' flag information doesn't seem to be given out by dovecot.
It's like it's write only.

Is it a bug that dovecot doesn't hand out the "forwarded" metadata?
