Sorry, I should've said earlier.
It's not only for update. There is a patch to fix SELECT ... INTO, and I
suppose we'll have "simultaneous assignment" behavior everywhere
So, I'm leaning towards either simultaneous_assignment or
simultaneous_set as mode names. The first is more exact, but it's rather
long (sql_mode names range from 3 to 26 characters, and this one is 23).
The second (with 16) fits right in the middle of the range, length-wise.
But there's no SET keyword in SELECT ... INTO.
On the other hand, there's no ASSIGNMENT keyword anywhere either :)
