           Summary: @mode in ws-frag is harmful
           Product: WS-Resource Access
           Version: FPWD
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Fragment
        AssignedTo: public-ws-resource-access-notifications@w3.org
        ReportedBy: ylafon@w3.org
         QAContact: public-ws-resource-access-notifications@w3.org


I have a question about the introduction of 'mode' in fragment PUT              
mode has three different values:                                                
http://www.w3.org/2009/02/ws-fra/Modes/Replace                                  
http://www.w3.org/2009/02/ws-fra/Modes/Insert                                   
and                                                                             
http://www.w3.org/2009/02/ws-fra/Modes/Remove                                   

Put+Remove sounds awfully like a Delete, and Put+Insert looks also awfully      
like a Create. (and Put+Replace looks like... a Put)                            
So why adding another axis of extensibility to duplicate what's already         
there?

(see discussion at
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-ws-resource-access/2009Sep/thread.html#msg88
)

Proposal:
Get rid of '@mode' and use Create(Frag) Delete(Frag), like it's done for
Put(Frag).
