           Summary: new MUST level requirement for LOCK on unmapped URLs
           Product: WebDAV-RFC2518-bis
           Version: -08
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: 07.  Write Lock
        AssignedTo: joe-bugzilla@cursive.net
        ReportedBy: julian.reschke@greenbytes.de
         QAContact: w3c-dist-auth@w3.org

The pre-draft of -09 states in section 7.6:

   A successful lock request to an unmapped URL MUST result in the
   creation of an locked resource with empty content.  Subsequently, a
   successful PUT request (with the correct lock token) provides the
   content for the resource, and the server MUST also use the content-
   type and content-language information from this request.

This is a new MUST-level requirement that as far as I understand hasn't been
discussed anywhere before, and which contradicts an upcoming TAG finding
(<http://www.w3.org/2001/tag/doc/mime-respect>) - that is, we can't *require*
the server to use the submitted meta data.
