    However, you need to balance this approach against the overhead of fetching data that the client doesn't need. You can think of the client as the front end and the server as the back end. The patch document doesn't describe the whole resource, only a set of changes to apply. Notice how the complexities have now been reduced to a simple association with a query parameter. I'm not going to put much effort into explaining this one.

    Use Filtering, Sorting, and Pagination to Retrieve the Data Requested.However, as this goes against some RESTful principles, we can minimize our deviation by only doing so based on an embed or expand query parameter.

    Although your inner-grammatician will tell you it's wrong to describe a single instance of a resource using a plural, the pragmatic answer is to keep the URL format consistent and always use a plural.
