That one is a bit tricky since it needs the fields which are internal (in the bindings) and their logical names (for static fields) are already being used for (mostly string) instance properties (that returns values not the fields names).

Miguel, this is the case I talked to you about. Fields are internal ( a good thing in general) and properties using their name were exposed (but not to expose the fields). 

Now a (not really) new API needs the fields... and most options looks ugly/confusing (and much different from objc source would look like when porting code).

I added the GetXXXDisplayName methods for the three cases that actually return values based on Apple's documentation
