I support the "upgrade" from "URI" to "URL", whenever we can do so.
A URL is a URI, but a URI is not always a URL, so saying that something
is a URL has added meaning, and is worth saying whenever it is true and
doesn't conflict with accepted usage.

Cheers,
Geoff

I'm not convinced that this change is important. A URL is a URI. We just
need to be clear about when a URI actually happens to be a *WebDAV* URI.

That being said:

That section needs to be fixed anyway -- property names do not have URLs or
URIs. Period. This should be put onto the issues list (Jim?).

There maybe a deadline for draft submissions before the IETF meeting, but
does that mean that a new RFC2518bis draft needs to be submitted at all? I
would have hoped that before a new draft is submitted, the issues
*introduced* by the submission of the previous draft are actually resolved
(or at least discussed). See
