And even REST does not define this afaik.

The payload for a POST request usually contains the complete instance
(i.e. all attributes). The distinction of 'nil' (no change) vs. 'empty'
(write empty value) is usually done on the service side, comparing the
new with the current value and only writing changes.

Now that you mention it, maybe we could use the distinction between
POST/create and PUT/update.
