Clarify that observe is about eventual consistency

Jeroen Hoebeke notes (msg02900):

There is a difference between the following:

  1. informing a client about every change of the state of a resource: this is what one would expect when just reading the abstract of the draft
  1. delivering a client an always fresh representation of a resource (even if the resource did not change): this is what the draft actually implements through the max-age option


a) observe is indeed about eventual consistency, only, at this point in time
We need to ensure that the abstract provides truth in advertising.
