Reading this thread I was thinking about /health, I think it makes
perfect sense to consider the action containers like any other
service, which need to provide a /health endpoint separate from their
operational endpoints.

The health check might try /health first and fallback to something
else if that's not provided, to enable a smooth transition to
health-enabled containers over time.
