in DELETE section [1], it might be worth to add a paragraph.

    Once the server has successfully completed
    the DELETE, a server response on any 
    subsequent requests on the same URI SHOULD be 
    410 (Gone) (See section 8.4.11 of [Part2]).

Rationale: people hesitate on what they can do once the DELETE has been accomplished.
