you lost the answer to your question when you truncated my message. 
Indeed, you're missing the sentence in between that reads "Now, with an 
aggregation model these answers can change. In the simplest form, it could 
be something like this:"

So, to clarify, the model applications can handle on their own is a basic 
aggregation model where the server isn't expected to do anything special - 
like deleting member resources when the container is deleted. As of Lyon, 
we agreed to define the composition model in LDP and left the aggregation 
model to be proposed by those who feel the need for it. We have yet to see 
a concrete proposal.
