recently different communities (caldav/groupdav, atompup (protocol
part)) have been discussing how to use HTTP to author new resources when
the URL namespace is completely server-controlled, thus PUT just doesn't
fit well.

A simple approach would be to define a new HTTP method which is *almost*
like PUT, except that the server chooses the URL to create (and returns
it in the Location header).

I've submitted a first draft as "draft-reschke-http-addmember-00". Note
that it also contains an appendix covering possible alternative approaches.

Feedback appreciated,
