Using REST API (XML) with curl

For some fields, invalid values can be submitted. These values are not ignored, rather the current field value is deleted. For example:

Field "start_date":
If a year of more than 9999 is submitted (for example, "<start_date>10000-01-01</start_date>", the journal entry suggests that the date was updated. However, it was actually deleted.

Fields "Category_id, fixed_version_id, assigned_to_id, done_ratio", also applies to custom fields (boolean):
If a value of "a" is submitted, the current value is DELETED or reset to the default value. For example, when submitting "<done_ratio>a</done_ratio>", done_ratio is set to 0

Expected result:
Invalid values should not result in the fact that old values are deleted or reset. An error message should be thrown.
