I don't see who we can insist on atomicity of a single operation as 
being required although we can encourage it.

The range of systems I think we must target includes simple processors 
for single request usage.  Maybe a system that reads in files, changes 
them and write them out could be useful but it's not atomic without a 
presuming various details - be nice in shell scripts though (it can be 
made atomic but isn't automatically).

Service Description would be the place to give the supported features.
