But they haven't been submitted for the right URL. Is this really

"<nolock>" isn't a valid Coded-URL. Using "<DAV:nolock>" instead fails both
on moddav and Sharemation (can't try with IIS right now).

My understanding is that a client needs to supply the lock tokens tagged for
the right URLs. Where's the problem with that approach? It's interoperable
and works right now.
