We have been careful about using the word "creator" for the person who 
creates a
lock, in text, *rather* than the word "owner" (which could be either the 
person
who creates a lock or the person named in the owner field).  It would 
undo some
of this careful terminology usage to go back in this one case.  Besides, 
it's
rather redundant to say that the owner field contains owner informaiton --
"creator" indicates who the owner ought to be.

The key problem here is that the property description says that the <owner>
element contains information about the "creator". It doesn't. It's 
incorrect.

The "creator" is the principal how took out the lock, as defined in 
Section 6.4.

The <owner> element just stores whatever the client sent in the lock 
request.
