In RFC 3253 I find in section 14.8 that you can indeed reinstate the  
history of a collection in this way, but I can't find anything like  
that for
resources that are not collections.

I see no evidence for the statement that a new version-controlled  
should be created for reinstating a version history. This seems to be  
happens when the VERSION-CONTROL method is used, but that is not the  

The usage of BIND I propose is semantically equivalent to an addition to
the version-controlled-binding-set property of the parent collection  
of the
request URI.
