Scaffolding API GET request for reference fields should also deliver the page IDs instead of page titles

When using Scaffolding API to GET for reference field, we are getting the page titles. However, for PUT requests, we have to send the corresponding page IDs.

That leads to many expensive GET requests due to searching the pages by their titles

Therefore an GET request for reference fields should also deliver the page IDs instead of page titles

    To my mind it is more a bug than a feature, because the page titles come without the space keys and therefore searching for page titles may lead to inconclusive results.

    And furthermore an API should be consistent in its PUT and GET behavior!
