It turns out those are bad examples, they do accept IDs.

The point though was there _are_ times when what you want is not what
the opinionated composed API gives you (as much as I _do_ like those).
It isn't so much making more REST calls, but a similar number of
different ones that are actually more efficient in the long run.
