Agreed, thanks for clarifying.  :-)

The situation I was trying to convey is essentially the situation you 
described above, where a Delta-V enabled server has unversioned 
resources in the scope of the query. It follows that if a given server 
doesn't support versioning at all then it should behave the same way 
when processing a query with <include-versions/> specified. I was simply 
identifying the commonality between the two cases...
