REST API: Convert Lead

From my research, the REST API does not support lead conversion.  I am using the Group Edition for SalesForce, so I don't have access to the "Enterpise API (WSDL)).  Am I correct that the API does not support conversion?  If I were to write my own, does the conversion simply do:

1. Create Contact
2. Create Account
3. Set Lead status to converted

Is there anything else it does behind the scenes?

Even if you create Contact and Account there is no way to update lead status as converted untill you convert lead. It will show error as INVALID_FIELD_FOR_INSERT_UPDATE. Even me too searching for convert lead automatically but i am not getting any way through rest api.
