The game doesnt use file paths anymore, and the file Simca references is more likely to vanish eventually than be offered up through APIs.

So in short, the game can't give you any information it doesn't have, and its extremely unlikely they add extra information just for some addons. Addons will be able to update to the new system eventually, just don't stick to the mentality "its entirely broken", instead think about how you can fix it without relying on Blizzard to fix it for you.

We have asked Guill on IRC the other day, and the answer was quite simple: They are trying to use file IDs exclusively in the game.
