Only include Action/Version params for v4 sigs when really required #13

Currently this conversion assumes all v4 signatures include required Action and Version parameters. That's not correct: v4 APIs that don't use the query or ec2 protocols don't need or use these parameters.

To see this, compare the v2 docs with the v4 docs - v2 lists these parameters as required, but v4 only talks about the X-Amz-Security-Token query parameter, and no others (and we include that on every spec generated here already). There was a URL commented in here explaining this logic, but it linked to the IAM signing docs, and IAM uses the query protocol.

This PR stops including those parameters as default, and instead makes sure they're both included (adding Version) for the right protocols.

To check the results, take a look at:

  • appsync - the docs don't use Action or Version params, and now neither does the spec
  • autoscaling - the docs do require Action & Version params, and the spec now includes these more explicitly on every operation with the exact correct value.
