HTTP 1.1 issue 02: 3.11 Entity Tags

In section 3.11 "Entity Tags", the statement

   "A given entity tag value MAY be used for entities obtained by
   requests on different URIs without implying anything about the
   equivalence of those entities."

confuses me to the point of being unable to parse it, let alone
summarize it.
