2.7 Combining Responses

        If the new response contains an ETag, it identifies the stored
        response to use. [rfc.comment.10: may need language about
        Content-Location here][rfc.comment.11: cover case where INM with
        multiple etags was sent] 

10: Yes, with an almost identical sentence following

        If the new response does not contains an ETag but contains an
        Content-Location, it identifies the stored response to use.

covering the case where there is no ETag but Content-Location.

11: Don't see what needs to covered there. What's important is the ETag
found in the response, not which etag-values we sent in I-N-M. There
will only be at most one ETag in the response.
