Instead of a general "safe" idea, I'm wondering against what error cases
mv should be made aware of?

I.e., there are cases when creating the new files/directories fails,
when reading or writing fails, and when unlinking the old files/directories

IMHO the only solution to be sure mv completely finished its job is
when all steps are done. Therefore, using cp+rm makes most sense.
Thinking iterative, rsync may be the best option.

Have a nice day,
