The linear-activity preconditions states: "If there is a request
activity set, unless DAV:unreserved is specified, the selected
version MUST be a descendant of all other versions of that version
history that select that activity.".

What should happen if there are no versions yet in the version
history with a given activity in their activity-set? It is then
not possible to select a version which is a descendant of all
other versions in that activity. It could be resolved by adding
the given activity in the activity-set of the latest version in
another activity.

According to section 13.2.1, however, a server may refuse an
update of the activity-set property. How can such a server then
the first version in a new activity?
