Comment (by rmccue):

 @boonebgorges Indeed. We use the post type `supports` to automatically
 add/remove support for different parts of the response. For example, if
 the post type doesn't support `title`, we remove the title from the
 response (and the schema changes to reflect this).

 Note that it's still technically possible to have titles on posts that
 don't support `title`, but you have to implement the UI and such yourself.
 Likewise, you can add it back to the API reasonably easily.

 Our general assumption is that removing support for something indicates
 you're doing something special with it, and probably want a different
 output format for it. `supports` therefore is more of general indication
 of "I want WP to handle this".
