well, unfortunately things are bit more complicated.
in jsr-170 the observation is to reflect WHAT was 
changed in a repository and not HOW that change
was achieved. additionally all the changes are 
applied in an atomic fashion through save() or
the commit of a transaction.

especially since also subtrees of a repository 
can be saved() and operations can be 
reverted for example by moving a node from 
to a new location and then moving it back, 
and obviously there are operations like a delete 
that cause possibly a large number of events. 
defining the order of events becomes quite 
complicated and we were not able to come 
up with an application that would need a natural 
order of events that are produced by an atomic 

because we were not able to come up with
that application, i was wondering what application
johal built, that requires the chronologic order of 
events inside an atomic commit especially
since the transient space does require a 
particular order of operations to achieve a 
certain final result.
