I'm not suggesting to change RFC 5789 regarding atomicity of the transaction. However, this is the first use-case I've come up with for server push. I want a 204 back for each file, or directory, listed in my PATCH entity-body. Then I can re-send individual requests for any missing links, after an appropriate timeout.

Note that while my example takes 2-3 round trips to implement, the result can be pretty much an infinite number of files PATCHed. Maybe PATCH _can_ be anarchically scalable? When needed.
