As a third party, I can use ids to interact with different endpoints
In #3633, we exposed ids in responses. Now the problem is that the Katello/CLI/etc can't perform actions like publishing a repo version without the href. We need to figure out a way to let them use IDs.
1. Extend HyperlinkedRelatedField to accept ID in addition to href
2. Add another param for ID (e.g. repository_id) in addition to repository

I think that Katello and other projects that integrate with Pulp should be able to store full relativate URIs for all resources that they need to be able to access at any time. The URIs would look like '/pulp/api/v3/repositories/<id>/'. The client would then need to be configured with Pulp's hostname, port, and prefix (for re-rooting the API). The client's can then use the hostname, port, prefix, and the full relative URI to properly form the URL for a resource that it already knows about.

@dkliban so basically Katello has to either:
1. Store id AND href
2. Know how to translate hrefs into ids for each resource
Either way, Katello has to deal with both ids and hrefs. I think Katello should just deal with ids or hrefs but not be forced to use both.
