I don't think it's actually in the API.

I think we do for other cases, my understanding is that the issue is whether we 
would need a new microversion for the API because we're changing the 
user-visible behaviour of the migrate/resize operation when something goes 
wrong.  (IE rolling back to an active state on the source rather than staying in 
an ERROR state.)

I believe this is exactly what it is.

How?  The microversion is (currently) the only way the client has of determining 
server behaviour.
