Routing is now a global concept. ASP.NET (MVC and Web API) assumes that you will use a global or controller level convention to define your routes.
Having said that, nothing stops you to define this route in your API:
id = RouteParameter.Optional, controller = "placement"
And your controller having an action
public IEnumerable<MyType> Get(int id, [FromUri]int take, [FromUri]int skip)
