MAgento 2 API & Flat Catalogs

MAgento 2 API & Flat Catalogs

The Magento 2 API does not seem to be using the flat catalog at all - at least I did not see any reference to that when evaluating the code.

My questions:

  1. Is this on purpose or just a feature that might be added?
  2. Is it maybe not a good idea at all to use a flat catalog for the API since it is more a "frontend" related feature?
  3. Assuming it will never be possible, has anyone ever thought about how it might be used for getting catalog related information via the API? Maybe a complete new service is to  be implemented?

Any thoughs greatly appreciatedSmiley Wink
