The first stop/start is when you do the update, the second is when you 
do the refresh. The former is historical, since that is the way update() 
was defined in the first version of the spec (I believe). Later versions 
of the spec where refreshing was introduced didn't change this behavior 
for backward compatibility reasons.

If refresh were there from the beginning, then it would have likely been 
better to have update() simply prepare the updated version and refresh 
enact it.
