No - that's not the case, we're using _.escape(..) function on the node's
label to fix the issue of XSS vulnerability on client side.
Hence - during sending back the data, we're using _.unescape(..) function
to return the same data coming sent by the server.
Though - IIRC - we have a original label stored in another variable
'_label', which we can use it instead of unescape it again.

As I explained above, it wont affect the RESTful API.
