[CalendarServer-users] Semantics of bulk POST wrt. implicit scheduling

I noticed that if a user does a bulk POST...
  (- as described in doc/Extensions/calendarserver-bulk-change.txt 
section 3.)
... the server will react by doing implicit scheduling.

So, in other words, if iMIP scheduling is enabled and the user imports 
an iCalendar file with him self as attendee and an ORGANIZER unknown to 
the system, an iMIP REPLY mail will be send to the ORGANIZER.

It seems like sound behavior for a single PUT operation, but I doubt 
this is what the user expects for a POST of a large .ics file with lots 
of events having scheduling data in various states.

Is there any official considerations wrt. implicit scheduling and bulk POST?
