"if-modified-since" requests

I like the idea, but think a better way of doing it would be to use version numbers as etags, and use If-None-Match to indicate which version the client has. The same mechanism can then be used for history requests, e.g. use If-Match to retrieve a specific version of an object. Jonathan Bennett 19:23, 18 March 2011 (UTC)
