Is a Kubernetes Ingress Controller good enough to be an API Gateway?

As Kubernetes becomes increasingly pervasive, we’ve seen the development of ingress controllers to claim the role of an API Gateway. On the surface, this may look fine and certainly takes advantage of K8s’ sophistication, but is it right?
