It's a simple dump of basic credentials.  Not only are supplemental
groups not dumped (nor capabilities), but also there is nothing that's
telling you what mode (or capability) granted you the access (ignoring
SELinux audit records).

I don't know, I don't think it's explicitly required by CAPP (unless
you interpret subject identity to include suplemental group IDs).
As far as groups go, they can become large (no longer a fixed size array).
