At first glance, I cannot understand why wrapping them in a single 
transaction would not be the default behaviour here. Adding records in 
@PostPersist is likely something like:

* audit records to track changes

* financial transactional data (eg writing to a general ledger when 
invoice is created)

* updating denormalised data (eg. contact.owing) which might be done for 
search or performance reasons.

In each case I can think of, rolling back the whole transaction would be 
a more appropriate behaviour in case of failure.
