Well, no:

"If the destination collection of a MOVE request supports the REBIND 
method (see Section 6), a MOVE of a resource into that collection MAY be 
implemented as a REBIND request."

The text clearly talks about the destination collection, and as far as I 
can tell, it's doing that on purpose.

The source resource doesn't need to support REBIND - REBIND is a method 
where the Request-URI is the target collection into which the new 
binding is added.
