Yes, this basically seems to provide what I need, except for one thing: 
I can't send a PUT requests with pure HTML which means I can only create 
new or objects or completely overwrite them.

I know it's not the way REST should work etc, but unfortunately browsers 
don't really care. So is there a possibility to at least optionally 
being allowed to POST to a _update function with docId instead of PUT?
