The base WebDAV protocol [Goland et al., 1998] provides basic support
for collections.  It defines a MKCOL method for creating collections
and specifies how other HTTP and WebDAV methods interact with
collections.  It supports only internal members of collections, which
it defines as members whose URIs are immediately relative to the URI of
the Collection.

Many applications, however, need more powerful collections. There are
Two areas in particular where more powerful functionality is Often
needed: referential members and ordering.

this draft specifies extensions to the base WebDAV protocol to support
these more powerful collections.

NOTE:	The mail server at ietf.org 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
