This is a keen observation.  I think that the best place to add it
would be in the endpoint base class.  It may be necessary to
distinguish "details" endpoints (one item) from "list" endpoints (a
list of items) by having different parent classes for them.

This is one of the reasons I haven't added too many resource types yet
-- I expect that this will require some significant changes, so it's
good to not have too many resource types to change.
