Lookup key option for SendMailing XML API

It would be great if the SendMailing XML API could accommodate a lookup key as well. This could mean the call can be made with either the email address or a lookup key.

    The SendMailing XML API currently does support the ability to use Lookup Keys to locate a specific contact who's email address may appear in the database multiple times.  This article now contains an updated example for how to use one or more Lookup Keys within your SendMailing API request - https://developer.ibm.com/customer-engagement/tutorials/send-mailing-contact/
