I was just sort of thinking, if one implemented a server using a XML
database, and one used the database locks to implement the DAV LOCK, it
seems like you would end up with the lock locking the resource not the URI.
Perhaps that would just not be a legal way to implement it. I'm not making
an argument one way or another, I was just sort of pondering this and
wondering if my assumption that using the database lock to implement LOCK
would result in this model.
