Sorry?

John asked for an extension that allows clients to state that MOVE 
should be atomic (the default staying non-atomic for backwards 
compatibility).

Geoff pointed out that that extension already exists and is called REBIND.

Clients that would want to take advantage of it would need to be 
upgraded in both cases. And, as a matter of fact, they would still need 
to be able to handle servers with non-atomic MOVE implementations.

What am I missing?
