iD currently calls `api/capabilities` (unversioned) but we should change this.

It makes more sense to me to just drop the unversioned endpoint and have separate resources for:
* `api/0.6/capabilities`
* `api/0.7/capabilities`

> Should we instead have an api/versions call that just indicates supported versions, and clients can then call api/X/capabilities for the one they want to use? 

seems fine 👍 

> Should we remove the version information from api/X/capabilities since it's not really a capability of that version of the API?

I agree it can be removed, I never even noticed it was there..
