How to easily add email to contact via API?

I need to add emails to contacts. But I wasn't able to find out how to do it in a convenient way.

Now when I want to add an email address to a contact, I have to call three endpoints.

1 - I need to call POST /EmailAddresses to get the email address's ID.

2 - I need to call GET /Contacts/<id> to get email addresses already attached to the contact to use them in PUT so they won't get deleted.

and finally 3 - PUT /Contacts with the email array containing all email addresses along with the new one.

This seems a little bit odd to do just to add an email address to a contact. Isn't there something simpler?

Something like /POST /Contacts/link/emailAddresses or whatever I may be missing?
