I'd like to avoid to include pseudo-code like that *unless* it's really 

Do we really need to define the evaluation order? In what real-world 
situations well there be more than one condition?

Wouldn't it be simpler to:

1) Formally define the condition expressed by each header field,


2) State that all conditions must be met, otherwise a 412 will be 
returned (with the 304 variant special-cased).
