That's all very nice, but it ignores how complicated this would be to implement on the server.

Even if you had somebody willing to try and implement it on the server, and a plausible way to do so, which it is not at all clear even exists in our current architecture, it would just be wrong on principle.

Just as a matter of principle I don't think we should accept anything that attempts to make an operation which is defined to be non-idempotent behave idempotently.

I'm not saying there isn't a problem that should be solved, just that I don't think this is the way to do it.
