ReadOnly annotation support for Apex Rest services

Development (Apex, LWC & VF)

The @ReadOnly Apex annotation allows an unrestricted querying against the database with certain restrictions.
While this can be implemented for scheduled execution, webservice invocation and specific Visualforce pages this feature is not available for custom Apex REST services.

Please consider supporting @ReadOnly on Apex Rest classes and/or methods.

example: Apex Rest services may be build to expose data in other structures than sObjects as exposed through the REST API. Doing so may require a lot more queries against various objects and relations than the actual data being send out in the response.

    This is supported starting in Summer '20, although it's not totally "unrestricted" it does use the higher set of ReadOnly Apex limits.
