Yes, and MUST the lock token appear in that context? This is important 
because some clients pull the lock token value from the body of the 
request.  When we tested this in interop testing, we found some clients 
used the body and some used the header, and we had decided at that 
point to allow that to continue happening and make servers put the 
token in both places.
