The first justification for the proposal is that we already provide the
facility of in-situ validation, we just don't provide any sensible surface
syntax for it: you invoke it, for example, by doing a rename on a node with the
new name being the same as the old. Since implementations have to provide the
capability, it makes sense to make it accessible to users. This is a
justification based on orthogonality of design, not on specific use cases.

Clearly, as with all updates, use cases depend on the context in which updates
are run: we don't provide any way of taking advantage of the fact that a rename
was done without change of identity, but we assume that updates will occur in
an environment where this is significant to applications. The same applies to
