To improve the wording, perhaps, someone should help the WG understand what is not clear.

Subject: [Bug 8302] New: descriptions of PutResponse and CreateResponse contain unclear sections

http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=8302

           Summary: descriptions of PutResponse and CreateResponse contain
                    unclear sections
           Product: WS-Resource Access
           Version: PR
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Transfer
        AssignedTo: public-ws-resource-access-notifications@w3.org
        ReportedBy: gilbert.pilz@oracle.com
         QAContact: public-ws-resource-access-notifications@w3.org


The description of PutResponse contains the following paragraph:

"Such a response (an empty wst:PutResponse) implies that the update request was
successful in its entirety (assuming no intervening mutating operations are
performed). A service MAY return the current representation of the resource as
the child of the wst:PutResponse element even in this case, however."

The description of CreateResponse contains the following paragraph:

"As an optimization and as a service to the requestor, the wst:CreateResponse
element of the response message SHOULD be empty, other than the ResourceCreated
element, if the created representation does not logically differ from the
representation sent in the Create request message and there are no extension
elements; that is, if the service accepted the new representation or creation
instructions verbatim. Such a response indicates that the request was
completely successful (assuming no intervening mutating operations are
performed). A service MAY return the current representation of the resource as
the second child of the wst:CreateResponse element even in this case, however."

You can sort of get the gist of what both of these paragraphs are trying to say
but it's not completely clear.

General Proposal: reword for clarity
