I think the way it works now is exactly right; I would not want the 
server to apply half of my diff upload and come back with errors for the 
other half. Any error in a diff upload means that the user was working 
on a dataset that was outdated in one way or another, and it is the user 
who must then decide how to proceed.

(And it is the editor who must enable the user to proceed of course ;-)
