This is not only testable, I believe it's already tested in the XQuery Update
test suite. The test suite only needs to assume that a resource can be
retrieved before and after an update to be able to test what updates have been
made on it.

It's very important to database implementations of XQuery Update like DB XML
that updates are made atomically. It's more of a pain to implement for
stand-alone implementations like XQilla, but I don't believe that makes it any
less useful.
