Nice! I'm remembering there was a good amount of discussion around the use of PATCH, as I *think* there are some different semantics for it - I'm trying to find the github ticket where that was discussed but I'm failing to find it right now. @rmccue @rachelbaker for any help there.

As long as that doesn't impact this, this looks good to me.

Did a search through the GH issues, and apparently people use the word "patch" a lot when developing OSS ;)

Found this, though...

Actually, our use of PATCH is kind of an abuse of the verb [...] We support it with the same semantics as PUT

REST API: Add PATCH to CORS allowed methods.

Editable resources in the REST API accept the PATCH method, but the CORS headers don't mention it.

Props jnylen0.
Fixes #38546.
