Since I think these use cases are not uncommon, I can imagine a
specific view type for these cases (like there's a JSON view type and
a XMLRPC view type), but *not* to add more API to the 'normal' views.

Maybe a RESTView? Where each of the HTTP verbs is a method on this
view? And where it is clear how to avoid "argument" parsing, when

(I'm afraid I do not have an answer for you *actual* question,
regarding Zope 3's take on PUT requests...)

Kind regards,
