Right.. it is. Or at least thats the most intelligble definition of it.
Doesn't make much sense in PROPFIND, but then a whole lot doesn't..

So a new header is required for PROPFIND to be able to return the ETag
of the PROPFIND entity. I'd propose Content-ETag for this purpose.

I dislike trying to add new "URI" header formats with their own parsing
requirements, which is my main objection to your new proposed header.
