           Summary: OVERWRITE_DELETE_ALL_TOO_STRONG
           Product: WebDAV-RFC2518-bis
           Version: -07
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW

A COPY or a MOVE with Overwrite set to True will perform a DELETE with Depth
infinity at the destination of the operation. However, in the same situation,
most OS's will perform a merge, rather than a DELETE. It is feared the DELETE is
counter to users expectations.
