Wouldn't it be handier to set this ticket as "blocked by" instead of duplicate ?
Separating the higher level user story from the technical details.

This is so not a duplicate, and should be fixed in VE regardless of RESTBase problems.

You mean special cased in VE because RESTBase can't handle it?

T118070 should be fixed now, should we revert the workaround on master?

Pretty sure we didn't. That page still has the behavior I implemented in the workaround from this task.
