widget status via API

One of the most disappointing things encountered during a system review meeting with clients is to find widgets reporting "no data" because something changed or silently stopped producing results.  In many other API endpoints, I have found there is a ton of state data embedded, but widgets have really nothing other than the lastUpdated* fields.  I would like to see at least a field that indicates there is no data for some or all datapoints, just like you would see in the UI.  Then we could generate reports on faulty widgets and be able to remain proactive.
