Now that's a more interesting topic (:-).

When you use the VERSION-CONTROL method with a specified Version,
one could interpret that as just restoring that resource, as opposed
to creating a new resource.  I can imagine repository vendors having 
strong
(contradictory :-) opinions on that topic, so I'd suggest maintaining
a discrete silence on that topic for now (and if it needs to be resolved,
do so in the RFC-3253bis, and not in the binding specification).

Cheers,
Geoff
