API to disable versioning in an asset for special scenarios to prevent rapid versioning. Usually needed when incremental updates are applied but only one “version” needs to be captured.
Essentially sometimes multiple changes will be made to an asset in rapid succession, usually for logging of changes made to the cms. These changes do not require a version to be made each time as it's just storing api changes. However this should need to be manually set in the cms just to prevent accidently being set.
