Environment settings in the Mendix Deployment API

According to the documentation of the Mendix Deployment API the way to get and set the environment settings is through getting/posting the entire list of environment settings available. However the GET doesn't return the "Documentation" attribute of Constants and Scheduled Events, which is visible when looking at the environment settings at cloud.home.mendix.com. Is it possible to get this information using the deploy-api? Also the suggested way of updating is by doing a POST in the same format. It feels a bit off to me to POST all variables at once and to include values such as "DataType" and "DeployedValue" in the call, as I shouldn't be able to change those. What does Mendix do if I omit these values, or if I give the wrong DataType/DeployedValue? Is this ignored or will this generate errors?
