 I'm a -0 on this, and had considered it when working on my patch. Using
 those methods introduces extra work (more get_post calls) that isn't
 required and introduces a layer of indirection that isn't particularly

 Technically "_thumbnail_id" might be an internal/subject-to-change detail,
 but it's used in many places in core, and I see no reason why the XML-RPC
 server implementation can't use it too. If core were to ever change the
 implementation, they'd have to grep the codebase and they'd find its usage
 here and change it appropriately.
