Comment (by swissspidy):

 > I'm really not an expert about the REST API, just wondering what is the
 advantage in using them ''in this specific case''.

 Providing more data in the response will be very useful in the future when
 you want to distinguish tags with the same name (#37975), do some sort of
 autocompletion (#31696), exclude tags that have already been added
 (#21258) or perhaps show the usage count of the terms in parentheses.

 Regarding the patches, the `term_search_min_chars` hook shouldn't be
 documented twice. See https://make.wordpress.org/core/handbook/best-
