The new para. in -08 would be:

   Because clients may be forced to prompt users or throw away changed 
   content if the ETag changes, a WebDAV server SHOULD NOT change the 
   ETag (or getlastmodified value) for a resource that has an unchanged  
   body. The ETag represents the state of the body or contents of the 
   resource. There is no similar way to tell if properties have 
   changed.
