When the API version is removed, shouldn't it report 410 (gone, or
"gone and I really mean it" depending on who you ask)?

Also, calls where the reply format hasn't changed at all should do 301
(moved permanently) to the new API version? (e.g. if nodes looked the
same, which they don't this time because of tag format).
