Do we care that the parameters are now switched as compared to those of
MOVE?

           Source            Destination

MOVE     Request-URI         Destination header

REBIND   href XML elem     Request-URI plus segment 
                             XML elem 


I think it doesn't matter, but thought I should raise it.
