How do I know when a category supports MPN?

Hi:

I'm trying to find when I can use MPN (Manufacturer + Part Number) in AddItem. When I ask what features are available for 31388, Cameras & Photo > Digital Cameras thus:

<GetCategoryFeaturesRequest>
<RequesterCredentials>
<eBayAuthToken>...</eBayAuthToken>
</RequesterCredentials>
<ViewAllNodes>true</ViewAllNodes>
<AllFeaturesForCategory>true</AllFeaturesForCategory>
<CategoryID>31388</CategoryID>
<DetailLevel>ReturnAll</DetailLevel>
</GetCategoryFeaturesRequest>

I get back:

<Category>
<CategoryID>31388</CategoryID>
<BestOfferEnabled>true</BestOfferEnabled>
<BestOfferCounterEnabled>true</BestOfferCounterEnabled>
<BestOfferAutoDeclineEnabled>true</BestOfferAutoDeclineEnabled>
<ExpressConditionRequired>true</ExpressConditionRequired>
<UPCIdentifierEnabled>true</UPCIdentifierEnabled>
...
<SiteDefaults>
[no reference to any XXXIdentiferEnabled]
</SiteDefaults>

which implies that only UPC is accepted. However, sending MPN information is successful:
<ProductListingDetails>
<BrandMPN>
<Brand>Canon</Brand>
<MPN>2764B003</MPN>
</BrandMPN>
</ProductListingDetails>

What gives? Thanks for any help,
Phil
