What's the semantics behind the PROPPATCH response.?

One propstat per subcommand of propertyupdate?
Or one per property?

I'm asking for the sake of future subcommands like insert that might partially
update a property.  The question still applies though but is somewhat of a
redherring in the current state of the spec.  That is, the current spec seems to
allow a request to set/delete a property multiple times, but this doesn't seem
like something folks/clients would do.  Especially due to the ambiguity of the
response one would get back.


Also is the following PROPPATCH response valid?  Note... all the href's specify
the same URI.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
 <D:multistatus xmlns:D="DAV:">
