Some cities don't show up as children of US counties  XML

Just noticed that some cities are not being returned by the "children" API endpoint as children of their counties. For example, Fort Lauderdale is in Florida's Broward County, but it isn't returned as a child of the Broward County parent.

I suspect this may have something to do with its "Feature class" being set to "seat of a second-order administrative division" instead of city or village, etc.

Is there any way to get these types of cities from the childrenJSON endpoint? I don't see a parameter for the feature class in the docs.
