      Description

      The term isolated is (probably) more technically correct than atomic.

      The only place where atomic is accurate, more accurate than isolated at least, is for a single document update. For anything that involves more than one document the term isolated should be used as it doesn't imply all-or-nothing semantics.

      I'd argue that we should just change all instances of "atomic" to "isolated" to be consistent.
