SimConnect_RequestDataOnSimObjectType with SIMCONNECT_SIMOBJECT_TYPE_ALL doesn't return Jetways

Per subject, the SimConnect_RequestDataOnSimObjectType call seems to filter out Jetways. It returns many objects that are not included in the usual Airplane/Groundvehicle/Boat/Helicopter, for example the Marshaller sticks, but it skips Jetways.

Perhaps this behavior was inherited from FSX, since Jetways weren't Simobjects there, but since they are now, it would be best if they could be returned like all the other objects, because it would make all the Jetway-related Simvars more useful.
