Agreed -- though I suspect this will be uncontrovertial.

Agreed -- ideally it would be sent to the WebDAV WG so that it may apply to
ACLs and friends equally well.

I believe that this was agreed as a non-issue, or rather that Stefan wanted
to know when VERSION-CONTROL had affected a resource and when it had not.

Again, a trivial change that I believe will be non-controvertial.

Editorial change.

Editorial change.

I'm kicking myself for not keeping the list, but I guess I was expecting
Geoff to do so.  I have asked him to make it generally available as I
believe that there are other issues that were raised (but don't ask me to
name them without searching<g>)

Your point is well taken, but I don't think it is as bad as you make out.
