There was no consensus for making this change at the face-to-face.

This is not testable within an update because of snapshot semantics, but the
scripting extensions will make these assertions testable, and subsequent
queries can also make this testable in environments that persist changes.

We define all updates in term of an XML instance, and atomicity is defined the
same way. While we say nothing about how an XDM instance is made available to
an application, this is not more of an issue for atomicity than it is for other
aspects of the update spec.
