Personally, I don't have a problem with endpoints interconnecting
however they want.  I do have a problem, though, with the idea that
because I use the same provider as another endpoint, the lack of
common settings (with the endpoint) results in a failed call, when, if
I were using a different provider, the call would succeed.

Even worse, because the failure likely occurs after the 200, there's
not a great way to fail-route.
