This seems like a fairly obvious oversight with the column.search API.
- the status (active vs archived)
- isDefaultColumn (the one that tasks get dropped in by default)
- sequence (order on the workboard)
are all necessary for a lot of things that very sensible real-world API clients need to do when working with columns.
