State change at server would require it.
I create a privacy list, i apply it - you need in order processing for that.

But I can have it as - I create privacy list, I apply it and my new list 
creation gets pushed to the resources (which is result of first 
operation, but is happening after second operation has completed).

I am not sure if you can check this whatever be the model you apply ... 
client sends stanza's and expects server to process it and route
