Deploy OVF with vcenter API to host with no resource pool

Looking for a sanity check here.  I am automating a basic workflow that auto deploys OVF templates across several deployments. 


In my case, one site is just two hosts with no DRS/resource pools.  On my DRS enabled sites i am able to use POST  /com/vmware/vcenter/ovf/library-item/id:{ovf_library_item_id}?~action=deploy to deploy an OVF with ease. 


That said, it seems that the resource pool is a required by this endpoints deployment_spec -- does this mean that this endpoint cannot be used to deploy a template unless the site is DRS enabled?  One would think you could just specifcy a host and datastore and call it a day? Hopefully im missing something?
