 From an implementer's viewpoint and one admittedly much less 
knowledgeable about specifications:

I found it much easier to translate the WebDAV specs into a programming 
architecture by classifying locks and ACEs as "associations".  Rather 
than fundamental objects (read "resources") associations are "tuple" 
(principal-action-resource) relationships between resources, with a 
relationship attribute set.
