recently different communities (caldav/groupdav, atompup (protocol 
part)) have been discussing how to use HTTP to author new resources when 
the URL namespace is completely server-controlled, thus PUT just doesn't 
fit well.

A simple approach would be to define a new HTTP method which is *almost* 
like PUT, except that the server chooses the URL to create (and returns 
it in the Location header).

I've submitted a first draft as "draft-reschke-http-addmember-00". Note 
that it also contains an appendix covering possible alternative approaches.

Feedback appreciated,
