Putting something under version control really doesn't mean anything 
beyond having multiple versions of the resource.
There are of course a variety of other features supported by many 
versioning servers, but having a version history is the lowest common 
denominator.

So yes, this draft would apply to the case you describe, as long as 
multiple separately addressable versions of the resource are provided.

Cheers,
Geoff
