If we are going to include it in OTP, it should be documented so that
people will know about it. I think that it should be documented in all
the places you mentioned (get_status() and callback function in sys,
the callback functions for the other modules).

Running the test suite with your modified sys, there is one failing
test case in gen_fsm_SUITE in the Stdlib test suite. Can you have
a look at that?

I have just added a new wiki page on how to run the tests:
