2.1  PATCH Method

the part talking about caching..

Why isn't the response to this method cacheable? It should be aligned
with POST, allowing for a 200 OK response which is cacheable, carrying
the modified entity.

Remember, HTTP caching is about how caches should react on later
GET/HEAD requests for the same resource. If the response to PATCH
carries the modified entity in the same manner as a GET would then it
should be allowed to cache that.

2.3 Advertising Support in OPTIONS

Why is Accept-Patch required. Or what is it that makes Accept unsuitable here?

Regards
Henrik
