ldp-ISSUE-80 (post create media type): How does a client know which POST requests create new resources [Linked Data Platform Spec]

http://www.w3.org/2012/ldp/track/issues/80

Raised by: John Arwe
On product: Linked Data Platform Spec

Split off from Issue-32.

HTTP tells a client how to know (after the fact) if it created a resource (201 status code), but not *in advance* how to know if that’s the semantic it will get should its POST be accepted.

Proposal: define a new HTTP header Accept-Post-Create whose value is a media type list to communicate which media types the server accepts when creating resources.

Exact value of the header name I consider WG choice.  Value above is simply a strawman.
