Document "/media" REST endpoint file upload mechanics

Description

The REST v2 /media endpoint reference at https://developer.wordpress.org/rest-api/reference/media/#create-a-media-item would benefit from a mention of file content upload mechanics. The first technique documented in this gist I found:

https://gist.github.com/ahmadawais/0ccb8a32ea795ffac4adfae84797c19a

(set the 'Content-Disposition' HTTP header field to 'form-data; filename="thefile.jpg"' and send the file's content as the HTTP body data) ended up working for me, but it would be helpful to have official documentation on this embedded in or linked from the /media endpoint reference.
