Well, we do. Many quota systems work like that; and if this is supposed 
to become the Quota spec supported by the IETF WebDAV mailing list, it 
should be compatible with these systems.

Or on the other hand, removing this part of the spec resolves *that* 
issue, and as far as I can tell, only one single vendor is supporting it 
anyway. So why not make it a private extension?
