One motivation for that could be to make UPDATE always be more general to INSERT. That is
currently, there is a bunch of operation that INSERT cannot do (counter increments, collection
appends), but that "primary key table" case is, afaik, the only case where you *need* to use
INSERT. However, because CQL forces segregation of PK value to the WHERE clause and not to
the SET one, the only syntax that I can see work would be:
> {noformat}
> UPDATE WHERE k=0;
> {noformat}
