I checked back in the email archives, and it looks like there was a 
very closely related discussion which I thought covered it but it 
didn't get into this specific issue.  Naturally consensus needs to be 
found in the WG and I'm sure we can accomplish this.  So are there any 
other opinions on whether the server MUST return the lock token in the 
body as well as the header of a response when a new lock is created -- 
even though we all agree the server doesn't need to normally put that 
info in the lockdiscovery property?
