Ok,

so do we have consensus to add the following subsection to section 2 
(<http://greenbytes.de/tech/webdav/draft-ietf-webdav-bind-latest.html#overview.of.bindings>)?


2.x UNLOCK and Bindings

Due to the specific language used in section 8.11 of [RFC2518], it might 
be thought that an UNLOCK request to a locked resource would unlock just 
the binding of the Request-URI.  This is not the case, however.  Section 
6 of [RFC2518] clearly states that locks are on resources, not URIs, so 
the server MUST allow UNLOCK to be used to unlock a locked resource 
through any binding to that resource.  The authors of this specification 
anticipate and recommend that future revisions of [RFC2518] maintain 
this behavior.


Best regards, Julian
