Julian, I can't tell from this what you are recommending a server return 
if (1) a bad token is provided  or (2) no token is provided.  Could you 
please resumarize your conclusions?

        Subject:        Re: Issue #68: UNLOCK_WITHOUT_GOOD_TOKEN


to summarize (

- errors linked to missing or bad tokens in the "lock-token" request 
header do *not* cause a 412 ("lock-token" isn't part of the headers for 
which 412-style preconditions are checked),

- clients need to be able to handle all 4xx status codes anyway,

- we define a specific precondition for missing/bad lock tokens inside 
the lock-token request header, so clients can more precisely identity 
this error condition

Jason, you may want to update your issues list accordingly.

Best regards, Julian
