There are two cases you want to do a PUT:
- uploading new nodes.
- updating existing nodes.
For the first case, you cannot do a prior GET, since it does not exist in
the database, right?
And for the second, you do not need to catch the ID in answer, since you
already know it or else you could not update the node, right? (And I think
the server does not return anything on updates anyway...)
