I hadn't heard of the PATCH method in HTTP, so I looked into it a bit.
It's not listed as a valid method verb in either RFC 7231 (from 2014) or
RFC 2616 (from 1999).  However, I do see it mentioned briefly in the
"Changes from RFC 2068" section of RFC 2616, which states:

   The PATCH, LINK, UNLINK methods were defined but not commonly
   implemented in previous versions of this specification. See RFC 2068.

Since PATCH was removed from HTTP over 18 years ago, and is clearly not
valid HTTP/1.1, I wonder if it makes sense to add this.  Do you have a
use case where you need it?
