The Cancel API Appears to be incorrect

If you go to the documentation for the Cancel API: http://docs.shopify.com/api/order#cancel You will see that it looks like the documentation for Order GET was just copied and pasted in its place. I am trying to implement Cancelation for orders and am unable to proceed without the proper documentation. Could you please correct this? Thanks!

The other is a weird part of the cancellation feature for custom payment methods: When canceling from a custom payment method (say cash/check or bank deposit, etc.), there's no option to void the payment, and no option ...
