Its not that it would be "broken" or "wrong". I just think that users
expect the documentation to include behavior and parameters-- ideally,
there should be enough information to create a request. In this case
however, the documentation just explains how to retrieve the necessary
information. It works, but I don't think it is ideal that the user needs to
make other GET requests to learn how to use an API endpoint.
