          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW

          Priority: P2

Section 8.8.2 states:

   As defined in RFC2616 [8], the "PUT method requests that the enclosed
   entity be stored under the supplied Request-URI."  Since submission
   of an entity representing a collection would implicitly encode
   creation and deletion of resources, this specification intentionally
   does not define a transmission format for creating a collection using
   PUT.  Instead, the MKCOL method is defined to create collections.

There is nothing in RFC2616 that would mandate that PUT on a collection would
affect collection membership. Simply drop the paragraph.
