U4-8892 - Creating a new node - Default template not selected in Template dropdown

Relates to: U4-7888

When creating a new content node, we expect the default template to be pre-selected in the template dropdown on the properties tab.

I tested this on the 7.5 build after a tweet from Jeroen, but also tested this on the latest 7.4.x build where this also has the same issue https://twitter.com/j_breuer/status/768024766666141696

However if we save the content node without selecting the default template, the node is saved and when reloaded the correct value for the template in the dropdown is set.

When investigating the problem it seems that we send a null in the JSON payload for the template property when we are creating/scaffolding a new node in the request. /umbraco/backoffice/UmbracoApi/Content/GetEmpty?contentTypeAlias=LandingPage&parentId=1063
