I noticed it appearing some time in August (2017). Last I checked (few weeks ago), yeah, the docs were lagging on this. Sorting by Most Watched was formally added several months earlier, and there's some documentation on that. I've been in touch with eBay on this issue of watchCount being included, and they've confirmed it's a feature, not a bug. So, likely here to stay. (And yes, if the node is missing, that means it =0.) I would've thought an outputSelector would be needed to return the data, but I guess not. Maybe its retrieval isn't as expensive to the API infrastructure as I thought. (Maybe that sort of thing is what we gained when wildcards were removed a few years ago.)
