Julian Reschke and I just chatted on the phone. My perception is that we
both agree that it makes sense to discuss the semantics of all DAV
properties under BIND, UNBIND, and REBIND. There seem to be differences in
desired behavior between properties whose semantics originated in WeBDAV
(which are typically defined on the resource), and ones inherited from HTTP
(like getlastmodified) which depend on representations of the resource. It
is likely this discussion will lead to modifications to the bind
specification.

Julian said he'd take the first whack at summarizing the technical points.
