You can only checkout a version selector once (the precondition failure, in
10.2 CHECKOUT, would be <DAV:must-not-be-checked-out/>)

p.s. comments based on versioning-8.2

Subject:  DAV:checked-out

I was just perusing v10 of the draft... The Version Selector property named
DAV:checked-out does not account for the case where multiple checkouts of a
resource may occur.

Seems it would be possible to do the following:

Joe:  CHECKOUT /foo
Jane: CHECKOUT /foo
Jane: PUT /foo
Jane: CHECKIN /foo
Jane: CHECKOUT /foo

In Jane's second checkout, the /foo Version Selector's target points to
something different from Joe's (active) CHECKOUT.

What is the purpose of this property? Thinking on it... I'm not sure
its value is even "interesting".
