[openstack-dev] [nova][api] why need PUT /servers/{server_id}/metadata/{key} ?

in analyzing other code, found seems we don't need PUT
/servers/{server_id}/metadata/{key} ?

as the id is only used for check whether it's in the body and we will honor
the whole body (body['meta'] in the code)

looks like it's identical to
PUT /servers/{server_id}/metadata

why we need this API or it should be something like

PUT /servers/{server_id}/metadata/{key} but we only accept a value to
modify the meta given by {key} in the API side?

Best Regards!
