We never deployed this feature due to complexity in the privacy model. In retrospect, few REST calls would be saved by this approach, as most users disappear for longer than the count parameter would cover. We may revisit this in the future, once we can accurately model the potential savings. In the mean time, hit the REST API after a connection is established to do the backfill.
