Hi,

In my opinion the paragraph about write-locked auto-checked-out  
resources
should only apply to such resources that have the auto-version property
set to "locked-checkout". The reason is that locking clients lose a  
use-case.
A locking client would first try to obtain a lock, open the document for
editing and then release the lock when the document is closed. In  
practice
this removes the distinction between "checkout" and "checkout-checkin"  
for
a locking client. Not checking in automatically is a valuable feature.  
One
can work all day and check everything in at the end of the day for  
example.
It combines the convenience of not having to check out everything  
manually and
complete control over the amount of versions.

Best regards,

Werner.
