This was the impression I got from reading the IBM docs for this
command/option.

My issue is that I have several nested elements, so it now means to use
this I will have to go through
and add a number of count variables, and maybe have to check 7 or 8
before I can actually get into my loop.

Is this the way that this is intended to work and are there any plans to
do you to change this so it will set all count variables?


No, sorry, there are no plans to change it so it will set all count variables. That's indeed how it was intended to work, with the counter subfields for a given data structure only being set when the data structure values are encountered within the XML document.

Initializing your DS in advance is a good way to handle this.

For sure I'll try to clarify the documentation on this.
