I'm happy to have one of the role elements be an href,
and have this href be the XLink role URI, e.g.:

<D:source>
  <D:link>
    <D:role>
      <D:href>/some/xlink/role/uri</D:href>
    </D:role>
    ...
  </D:link>
</D:source>

P.S. I know that isn't what Julian was suggesting,
but I believe it answers his concerns while still letting
the WebDAV role be an extensible element.

Cheers,
Geoff

I don't think this a good idea.

The W3C has decided to treat link roles as URIs. If we decide to define a
different mechanism, we will
sooner or later have to define a mapping of XLink role URIs to our role
schema (because other systems with which a WebDAv server connect may have
decided to use standard Xlink roles). Furthermore this brings *us* into the
business of defining roles (I think the spec should only define a mechanism
to marshall them, that's it).

I've made a proposal in the following post...

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-dist-auth/2002AprJun/0141.html

There have been several suggestions. I'd like to focus on one of them.
The suggestion is the suggestion to make the role be a tag rather than
an attribute. The justification was that this could allow for structured
roles.
That actually sounds good to me in principle, but I'd like to make sure
we're actually likely to capitalize on it.

Could someone suggest some roles that they'd like to see.

Also if you can think of any *structured* roles, please put them on the
table so that we can at least see how that might work.

Thanks,

J.
