Assuming such a thing were possible, what could you sensibly do with
two responses to the same request? Send only the first one to the
client? Compare if they are different and send an error if they are?

Or do you want to send only POSTS to multiple back-end systems to keep
them in sync somehow (not a reliable mechanism, as you will miss loads
of requests when a back-end is down)?
