My colleague just pointed out that it would create a resource than *can* 
be put under version-control. So the right thing would be say "Allow: 
CHECKIN, CHECKOUT" instead (for simple versioning as defined in RFC 3253).

Anyway: this really sounds like something we can remove, as in the 
current form it's both unused and under-specified.
