Definitely open a bug. IMHO, we should just make the single-instance
load work like the multi ones, where we load the metadata separately if
requested. We might be able to get away without sysmeta these days, but
we needed it for the flavor details back when the join was added. But,
user metadata is controllable by the user and definitely of interest in
that code, so just dropping sysmeta from the explicit required_attrs
isn't enough, IMHO.
