The spec uses the term "requested variant" in several places (10.2.2 201 
Created, 10.2.5 204 No Content, 14.19 ETag, 14.25 If-Modified-Since, 
14.28 If-Unmodified-Since). It's quite clear what it means in the 
context of HEAD/GET, somewhat clear for PUT, but not clear at all for 
other methods.

We really need to clarify this, potentially choosing a different term.

Best regards, Julian
