We can spend a bit of time on it in the "related work" item of the session on Monday, yes.

To make the use case a bit more concrete, and make sure I understand it, one example AIUI would be a request for

  Range: bytes=100-

to which you return, say:

  Content-Range: bytes 100-200/1000
  ETag: "1234"

and then to a subseqent, identical request

  Content-Range: bytes 100-400/1000
  ETag: "1234"
