Hi, I am from Cosmos DB engineering team,

Cosmos DB offers Java, Javascript, Python, and .NET drivers. Just like with most databases, it is recommended for applications to use drivers to work with Cosmos DB.

Cosmos DB offers REST API to work with data, documented at [1]. The primary focus of the REST API is SDK developers for platforms where we do not provide drivers yet. Just like most databases, we recommend to use provided drivers where available. This REST API is not intended for broad consumption by the apps. Your point about being more explicit about scenario the REST API is intended for and supported for is well taken. We will improve the documentation.

thanks for feedback!
