Actually Robert, what I had in mind is a table in the specification (or usage guide) listing all the attributes that can be requested by the client.  It will state explicitly which can be mutated, and give some explanation of the circumstances when the server might mutate it, and the legal range of values.  A client implementer then knows exactly what scenarios need to be handled.

I only envisioned option 3 requiring a protocol change.  I apologize if the wording in the poll wasn't clear that this was the intention.
