Bol.com: why can't I add the image type?

Some time ago bol.com added the option in their backend, to define which 'type' if image a specific product image is (view from the side, view from above, schematic, main image, etc). These types can vary per product type/category. Unfortunately, these image types are not available through the API, nor are available in the data model of bol.com ChannelEngine downloads and processes every week. Bol.com confirmed they won’t add this in API on short notice and it is currently not on their roadmap. This means these types can only be set or changed via the bol.com backend.

Important to know, excluding these fields from the content export, will not stop or prevent the products from getting published or block other product updates.
