DELETE and INSERT redundant vs. DELETE/INSERT?

I am working on an update to the SPIN RDF syntax to support the latest SPARQL 1.1 UPDATE draft. The latter contains a comprehensive description of DELETE/INSERT [1], followed by an equally comprehensive coverage of DELETE [2] and INSERT [3]. The latter two appear very much redundant, and are IMHO even confusing. DELETE and INSERT appear to be a true subsets of DELETE/INSERT, and even the Grammar [4] does not distinguish them.

Could those two simply be dropped, to simplify the documents and reduce the (apparent) implementation burden?

Thanks
Holger
