Putting a service into downtime using the REST API required permissions to access the corresponding host in the REST API. The REST API call would fail with an error message stating that,

Host 'myhost' exists, but is not monitored. Activate the configuration?

This behaviour doesn't match the GUI's and is now no longer the case.
