Can you clarify the meaning of an ETag header returned in the response to a 
PUT with a Prefer:return-representation header. Would that ETag refer to 
the resource whose representation is being returned? If so, could we please 
include ETag in the example. If not, then we really need a way to get the 
actual ETag for the returned representation - otherwise 
Prefer:return-representation is not that useful.
