I currently doesn't and I don't think it is applicable due to the semantics of PUT. In particular, the use of PUT assumes that the enclosed request will be be stored directly using the supplied Request-URI.

This is not my understanding of the semantics of both operations. PUT is an operation on a directly-identified resource while POST is a more generic operation and the body is assumed to be a subordinate of resource identified by the request.

Currently multipart only applies to POST and (in particular) to the append scenario. So, it is the equivalent of multiple POST / append operations against the same identified RDF graph content.
