	Title		: Requirements for a Distributed Authoring and

Current World Wide Web (WWW or Web) standards provide simple support
for applications which allow remote editing of typed data. In practice,
the existing capabilities of the WWW have proven inadequate to support
efficient, scalable remote editing free of overwriting conflicts.
This document presents a list of features in the form of requirements
for a Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning protocol which, if
implemented, would improve the efficiency of common remote editing
operations, provide a locking mechanism to prevent overwrite conflicts,
improve link management support between non-HTML data types, provide
a simple attribute-value metadata facility, provide for the creation
and reading of container data types, and integrate versioning into
the WWW.

Send a message to:	mailserv@ds.internic.net.  In the body type:

NOTE:	The mail server at ds.internic.net can return the document in
	MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
	feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
	command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
	a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
	exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
	"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
	up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
	how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
