------- Additional Comments From ejw@cs.ucsc.edu  2005-12-14 11:31 -------
Discussed during 12/14/2005 teleconference:

Use case for this:

Client updating a resource that they locked, knowing that the lock may have gone
away, but also possessing the Etag for the resource. In this case, the If header
can represent the condition of: make the change if the Etag is still there OR
the lock token is present. Using the If-Match header would have AND semantics,
not OR semantics.

Closing the issue, WONTFIX.
