Provide full resources where available

Provide the full resource representation (i.e. the object with all attributes) whenever possible in the response. Always provide the full resource on 200 and 201 responses, including PUT/PATCH and DELETE requests, e.g.:

$ curl -X DELETE \

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Content-Type: application/json;charset=utf-8
  "created_at": "2012-01-01T12:00:00Z",
  "hostname": "",
  "id": "01234567-89ab-cdef-0123-456789abcdef",
  "updated_at": "2012-01-01T12:00:00Z"

202 responses will not include the full resource representation, e.g.:

$ curl -X DELETE \

HTTP/1.1 202 Accepted
Content-Type: application/json;charset=utf-8
