Data sheet (LPC15XX.pdf) missing critical sections

I am amazed that some critical data is missing from the data sheet (LPC15XX.pdf).

in 11. Static characteristics, there is no worst case maximum current draw, how can this be left out? it is rather important.
in 12. Dynamic characteristics, there is no subsection for the PLL, or the ARM core, while it is stated elsewhere in the data sheet, it should be here where engineers will look for it
in table 11. oscillator pins, Vi(xtal), I would expect to see specs for ViH & ViL, but it just has one min & max. This tells me what the max swing is (-0.5 to 1.95) but not what the min swing is.

I think this is some of the most important basic information that I expect to see in a data sheet.
