RE: Last call: range locking



| Given that our goal is to provide for a distributed authoring and
| versioning system that will be implemented (I mean it isn't like this is

But few (no?) existing version control systems provide range locking.
So you'd be breaking new ground -- not necessarily the best thing for
a standards body.
