refundTransaction should not require anything other than original transaction ID

Created from previous thread:


Currently, to refund a transaction, you must provide both the masked credit card number and expiration date.   Yet this information adds nothing to the request -- in fact, if you no longer have this information, you must issue a separate getTransactionDetail transaction to fetch this information.   Rather than requiring two separate transactions to perform a single task, only require the original transaction id.

Can an update be given on this? This is an integral part of anyone trying to implement PCI compliance. There should not have to be the additional "get transaction details" call, in order to issue a refund. The original transaction ID should be (and was) sufficient.
