Proposal to close ISSUE-26 (creation model for LDP)

ISSUE-26 [1] raises the question of how items are created and added to a 
container and contends that LDP is limited to creating resources of the 
same type as the request entity. It then goes on to point out that an 
alternative would be to follow a model which is more similar to how HTML 
forms work.

Although there hasn't been any recent discussion on this, there has been 
quite a bit of exchange in the past. Yet, I think it's fair to say that no 
concrete proposal nor sense of convergence among the different parties 
involved came out of that discussion.

At the same time, the issue does not relate to a real problem with the 
current spec. The spec does provide a way to create resources and add them 
to a container. So, at most the issue points out a limitation that could 
be addressed in the future.

Given the need to close issues to remain on track with regard to our 
charter, I therefore propose that we close ISSUE-26 as is. Roger is free 
to add alternative creation models to the wish list (which he already has 
an action to create ;-)
