    - "In order to ensure unambiguous merging and baselining
    semantics, a workspace may contain at most one version
    selector for a given version history."  A bind to an
    existing resource in another workspace would require the
    server to determine if there are any version selectors
    in each workspace that fail this precondition.

  This last complication is one a server already must
  deal with, since the VERSION-CONTROL request can be
  used to create a version selector whose DAV:target
  refers to a version in an existing version history.

The difference being that the search space for a VERSION_CONTROL request is
the history of an existing versioned resource, whereas the seach space for
a bind to a workspace is the entire workspace.
