This has turned out to be both problematics to implement and not really
useful, so RFC2518bis gets rid of ths requirement.
You still can LOCK a unmapped resource, but that is equivalent to
atomically PUTting then LOCKing an empty resource. If the lock goes
away, the empty resource stays.
So nothing to worry about.
