By "signal" and "begs" I meant that that's what it leads me to think.
In other words (and IMO) "low-level APIS" makes sense as a container
for more than a single entry so the fact that there is one looks like
more will be there.  On the other side, having just one entry with a
singular title raises the same kind of question I'd have if I read a
book with "Chapter 1" but no other chapters.
