I appreciate the clarification on locking. Currently it says:

    6.8  Locks and Multiple Bindings

    A resource may be made available through more than one URI.  However
    locks apply to resources, not URIs.  Therefore a LOCK request on a
    resource MUST NOT succeed if can not be honored by all the URIs
    through which the resource is addressable.

This is a bit misleading as indeed the lock is on the resource, but it 
*protects* the URL through which the lock was created. Thus given URLs 
"a" and "b" identifying the same resource which was locked through "a", 
I can apply DELETE to "b" without needing the lock token.

This seems to be another example why it would be A Good Thing to 
completely import GULP (see for instance 
into the spec.
