Depending on whether the API is implemented in a user agent or plugin, or as a web service, different communication patterns are more appropriate. In the client side case, asynchronous access is typically preferred, while synchronous access is more appropriate for a web service. Thus the two version of the interface are not considered distinct features but different modes of implementation for the different use cases.

In the last sentence I would try to maybe avoid the word 
"implementations", that coould trigger an implementation discussion 
about the number of implementatiuons needed (2 or 4)
maybe use  "mode of access" or something like that.

Thus the two version of the interface are not considered distinct 
features but different modes of implementation for the different use cases.
