Well, it depends where we're coming from.

If the task is "define a patch format for use over HTTP Patch", then 
yes, we can assume HTTP is there.

We still suffer from an agreed-upon set of design goals and constraints.

If we want to *standardize* something, we need to abstract away things 
specific to JCR. Also, we need either to get the features we need into 
the common formats (such as support for tagging batches or adding 
tests), *or* need to make sure extension points are in place.

It would also be useful to understand why we apparently have three 
different implementations (two in Jackrabbit, one in Sling?), and what 
we need to do make the compatible. We probably can't make them a single 
implementation, but the fact that we have multiple "similar" diff 
formats and implementations gives me headaches.

Best regards, Julian
