PUT is more informative in client logs
PUT is more informative in server logs
PUT is harder to screw up, because you front-load the hard part:
getting some ids

And related:

Really, it is prudent never to oversell your hardware to Couch. It is
more, you might say "sustainable," to know that disk capacity and
bandwidth can support rebalancing (compacting) under typical or
worst-case loads. Among other benefits, it removes the leaky
abstraction where CouchDB seems to have an opinion about your doc ids.
