   Separating the workspace 'ownership' from the workspace 'membership' would
   resolve this issue.  It certainly has the potential to mess up some
   workspace optimizations.  Would you allow version selectors to change
   workspace ownership?

Not in my server (:-).

   Conceptually, why would you add this constraint if ownership and membership
   are orthogonal concepts?
   So a reserved 'yes', provided the constraint was made (for efficient
   implementation reasons), and clients cannot change a resource's workspace
   ownership.

Yes, I would have this constraint (to allow efficient distributed
workspace implementation), and would not provide a mechanism for the
client to change a resource's workspace.

Cheers,
Geoff
