I think it should be possible that containers could be created in the application, but, I think this would be part of regular application flow, and no special mechanism needs to be reserved for this case. 

There was a conflict in recent discussion on the mailing list related to this issue about instructing a regular LDP resource to become a container, because in order to "receive" that directive, I believe that it would already have to be a container first.
