MI was first developed on a remote target where implementing this was 
relatively easy.  That isn't the case for native and the code was never 
written.   Instead, as you note for DDD, native MI clients use 'gdb 

Perhaphs the thing to do here is deprecate the MI mechanism and 
recommend -tty for both native and remote cases (this of course will 
mean that the remotes need to be changed).
