I was wondering about this myself.  Are Expires header advisory? Or are 
they a guarantee that the server will not permit the resource in 
question to change until after the expiration date?  (Perhaps by 
accepting PUTs and POSTs against it, but returning "202 Accepted" and 
not returning the updated resource until the expiration time has passed.)
