#49538 new enhancement

Can't get a subset of `_embedded` using `_fields`

Description

I'd expect to be able to limit which values get returned in embedded fields, the same way that I can with standard fields. e.g.,

https://wordpress.org/news/wp-json/wp/v2/posts/8384?_fields=slug,_embedded.author.name&_embed

That would make the response faster and smaller.
