Trying to predict what the IESG might latch on to during their last 
call.

I understand that DAV:acl is a property, which applies to the resource, 
not the URL.  The suggestion has been made that MOVE has the same 
issue, but 3744 gives explicit requirements for MOVE and COPY, which 
differ slightly.  I don't know the history of 3744, but I assume that 
there needed to be text for section 7.3 and 7.4 since it wasn't obvious 
what would happen to acl's in the face of those operations.

I could imagine an IESG member who knew about the entire suite of 
protocols asking for the draft that added a new operation specifying 
how that operation fits into that suite.  I would expect that a line 
saying "BIND is the same as MOVE with respect to acl's", "BIND is the 
same as COPY with respect to acl's", or a paragraph on the same lines 
as 7.3 or 7.4 from 3744 would be enough to answer that question.
