Hmm.. from the discussions I got the impression that the default should
be 204 No Content / 200 Status message (as is for PUT today), with the
client being able to indicate a preference of actually having the
modified resource entity returned as a 209..

I think some context of the discussion has gone missing here.. what use
case are we talking about?
