> RFC2616 explicitly prohibits the use of weak validators in non-GET requests, however,
the HTTPbis working group says while the limitation for weak validators on ranged requests
makes sense, weak ETag validation is useful on full non-GET requests; e.g., PUT with If-Match.
When HTTPbis working group publishes a clarification to HTTP/1.1, weak validators will be
allow for PUT and DELETE requests. HttpClient should make this an config option until HTTP/1.1
is officially clarified.
