yes, agreed on that one. you can update and that will change the global
pages view of a collection, but these are two different things: you update
the collection with a resource, and where this is "inserted" into the
pages view does not depend on the client specifically inserting it on a
page, but on the server accepting it, and then refreshing its
understanding of how the new server state is reflected in a paged view of
the collection. cheers, dret.
