I'm trying to create an extension which makes an external API POST call.

First I tried to make a simple fetch call, but it is failing due to CORS policy:

const response = await fetch('', {
    method: 'POST',
    headers: {
        'Content-Type': 'application/json'
    body: JSON.stringify({key: 'value'})

But then in Block source I have found method unstable_fetchAsync(requestJson).

const requestJson = {
     method: 'POST',
     url: '',
     headers: [
         ["Content-Type", "application/json"]
     body: btoa(JSON.stringify({key: 'value'})),
     redirect: 'manual',
     integrity: null
await unstable_fetchAsync(requestJson);

It's working as expected, but the name is suspicious. Also, this method is not documented anywhere. I'm afraid that after creating the extension, I will not be able to submit it for public usage. 

Is this safe to use unstable_fetchAsync or there is another way to make external API POST calls?
