Dear all, 

this is a draft for an answer to Matthew Seaborn regarding "The use of HTTP 501" [1]:


Dear Matthew,

thank you very much for reviewing our document. Please excuse the delay in answering your request. We have discussed this issue during the 12th Face-to-Face meeting and agreed that the 501 status code does not fit our needs. In order to have a clear semantic, we have decided to declare our own status code, as follows:

- Numerical Code: 562
- Textual description: Property not supported
- Example: only a subset of GET methods for properties implemented

Please let us know, if you agree to our solution.

Best regards,


What do you think? Is it ok?
