    RE: batches should only be used when atomicity (consistency across tables) is needed

    Aren't there some small windows of vulnerabilities where a batch is not 100% atomic?

    For example, a batch series of inserts are successful if a hint was stored on the coordinator. If that coordinator node were to fail before the hint was delivered, then the mutation would not be sent leaving the data inconsistent.
