Look, you have two options. Either your API does provide
the level of control that some programs need (integrated,
not as a 'control panel'), or it does not.

In the first case you will have to live with the fact
that anyone can use or abuse the API whether you like it
or not, and no amount of lecturing people who *do* know
what they are doing is going to help you with that.

In the second case your API is deficient and unusable for
certain applications, and you will have to live with the
fact that some people will tell you and the rest of the
world that this the case.
