To clarify, we're saying that you needn't write a single line of code that
fetches the old prop value and does comparison to the new. It is not the
client's responsibility to detect out-of-dateness. It is the client's
responsibility to accurately report based-on revisions and the changes it
wishes to commit, and leave out-of-dateness checks to the server.
