I think that we should still paginate whether APIs support it or not. I think this will provide for a much better user experience.
1. pagination will reduce the amount of rendering of large data set (which can crash the browser)
2. user should be able to navigate back/more with some indication of where they are currently (page 1/20 for example)
3. filtering should continue to work with paging (allow user to get to relevant data faster)

Ideally, we just make an API call, and regardless of result size, we can still page it on the front-end. Eventually, when there is support for paging on the API side, we can provide a mechanism to sync paging from API to paging on front-end.
