PATCH requires a new format. POST doesn't.

POST is the most appropriate method for adding to a collection, especially if the server is to choose the URI for the new item.

Do you feel that POST is being constrained when the target of the POST request is different from the resource whose properties/members are being managed through the POST request?

Best,
Richard
