Add Brotli Support to API endpoints for improved compression?

Just a suggestion but maybe worthwhile:

Brotli is a generic-purpose lossless compression algorithm that compresses data using a combination of a modern variant of the LZ77 algorithm, Huffman coding and 2nd order context modeling, with a compression ratio comparable to the best currently available general-purpose compression methods. It is similar in speed with deflate but offers more dense compression.

The specification of the Brotli Compressed Data Format is defined in RFC 7932.

Brotli is open-sourced under the MIT License, see the LICENSE file.

Compresses 5-20% smaller than gzip

Thinking from a mobile app perspective here, but smaller responses are better for everybody in general.
