I believe this is already possible with sftp:
put important-file important-file.XXXX
rename important-file.XXXX important-file
Would this workflow solve your problem?
The only primitive i see missing for a complete/robust implementation
would be a mktemp equivalent as an sftp primitive (to avoid collisions
in the choice of temporary filenames), but that seems like a very
different feature request.
