Well, I certainly read it wrong although I read it carefully, because I 
forgot that REBIND is defined differently than MOVE so that the 
Request-URI is the target collection.  And it's not obvious to me that 
the source collection doesn't need to implement REBIND for this to 
work.  But if everybody else who reads the spec is clear on this, then 
I'll write it off as an anomaly.
