In section 13.3.3 "Weak and Strong Validators", the statements

   "The weak comparison function MAY be used for simple
   (non-subrange) GET requests. The strong comparison function MUST
   be used in all other cases."


   "A cache or origin server receiving a conditional request, other
   than a full-body GET request, MUST use the strong comparison
   function to evaluate the condition."

state the same requirement.
