I guess it's OK to return `ignored' files, but I don't think the API
should require it.  E.g. for vc-cvs.el it's pretty difficult to list the
ignored files, IIRC.

I think that's ok, we should understand that not all backend implementations are perfect.

The API describes the ideal, and also how functions differ from each other. Mentioning `ignored' in `dir-status-files' description is useful, because it should include ignored files (if possible), whereas `dir-status', a quite similar command otherwise, is allowed to omit up-to-date and ignored files (probably should even be recommended to omit them, for performance reasons).

And shouldn't vc-cvs.el implementation be able to use the trick you described earlier, and assign the status `ignored' to all files whose status it didn't find?
