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.
