RE: [Bug 2] Bindings needs to completely describe how bindings in teract with locks.

I would like to revise and expand on some wording that I introduced in
the first sentence, to make it clearer:

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 particular binding expressed by the Request-URI, rather than the
resource identified by that 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.
