get email addresses of members of your shared_folders

According to documentation, you can get a list of members on a shared folder with https://api.dropbox.com/1/shared_folders/<id>
and the response will contain:
"members": [
{
"user": {
"uid": 87654321,
"display_name": "Jane P. User",
"same_team": true,
"member_id": "dbmid:abcd1234"
},
"role": "owner",
"active": true
},
...

Is there any way to determine the email address of that user? (eg- from the uid for that user) Note that this is information that is available to the folder owner via the Dropbox web interface.

Hi Steve,

I am also looking for exactly same information. I need email_address of members of a shared_folder.

Is this still under consideration?

Thanks,
