In an API, it would be _optimal_ if you'd reveal all these links, tagged
with a controlled vocabulary of some kind letting us know what they are,
so the client can decide for itself what to do with them (which may not
even be immediately showing them to any user at all, but may be
analyzing them for some other purpose).
But the full text link, I agree, should be the first or default link,
and if you CAN only supply one in an API, I agree that is the right one
-- unless a particular record is not available in full text. (Which
hopefully should be apparent from the API response!).
