I figured out the appleid.apple.com issue.

It sniffs your User-Agent.

If it says Linux, Bad Gateway error.

WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK

IT WORKS WITH A WINDOWS UA

IT WORKS WITH A BSD UA

IT WORKS WITH A GOD DAMN OS/2 UA

NOT LINUX

WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU

And it's specifically that too. If I delete "Linux" from the UA and resend the request, it succeeds. If I delete just the 'x' off the end, it succeeds. If I lowercase the 'L' it fails. They are deliberately blocking Linux users from managing their Apple ID if they have one.
