I note that we seem to converge on this being something that clients 
should be able to discover.

The question remains whether this is something RFC2518 allows today (my 
position). In this case, new requirements should be explicitly spelled 
out (Etags types, Etag returned upon PUT?, binary content allowed?, 
...?) and given a name (potentially a discoverable compliance class).
