Currently, a list is not itself a data resource.  It’s tempting, I know, but it’s per RFC 8040...

No, that would be invalid API.

RFCs intend to be fully-specified, so as to ensure interoperability.   If you find something unclear, it is best to ping the list here; not only will you get clarification, but we may find the need to file an errata if warranted.
