Hi,

Section 12.9.1 of RFC2518 gives a DTD for the response element of
multistatus:

<!ELEMENT response (href, ((href*, status)|(propstat+)),
responsedescription?) >

But in the examples in section 7.1.1 and 11.2.1 in the deltav specification
we have multistatus responses with <href> elements but no <status> or
<propstat>
elements.  These are invalid given the above DTD.

So, are the examples missing <status> elements or is the DTD wrong and
should we
allow responses without status and assume 200 OK?

Regards,
