I am not sure that the notion of a 'versioned resource' is necessary at
all. If the draft defined 'version' instead the whole checkin/checkout
notion could be dropped.
The reason for making the distinction is that in many systems, versions
and versionable resources are different things (for instance, in JCR and
'Working Copy' could be defined separately as a resource that is an
'private copy' of a resource, one whose URI is not made available to any
client except upon initial creation (sorry that this is so imprecise - I
hope you get the idea).
The URI of a working copy may not be private at all.
...it's really to hard to come up with terminology that is compatible
with many different system.
IWO, the draft somehow circles around the checkin/checkout operations
and I am not sure that is necessary.
(But if this sounds completely insane, just ignore it)
No, I'm listening; and hoping for more feedback...
