This is one of a pair of specifications that extend the WebDAV 
Distributed Authoring Protocol to enable clients to create new access 
paths to existing resources.  The two protocol extensions have very 
different characteristics that make them useful for different sorts of 
The present specification defines redirect reference resources.  A 
redirect reference resource is a resource whose default response is an 
HTTP/1.1 302 (Found) status code, redirecting the client to a different 
resource, the target resource.  A redirect reference makes it possible 
to access the target resource indirectly, through any URI mapped to the 
redirect reference resource.  There are no integrity guarantees 
associated with redirect reference resources.

The related specification, RFC xxxx, defines bindings, and the BIND 
method for creating them.  Creating a new binding to a resource 
indirectly creates one or more new URIs mapped to that resource, which 
can then be used to access it.  Servers are required to insure the 
integrity of any bindings that they allow to be created.

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.
