The specification is currently unclear as to how a server should handle the
round-trip representation of property information. That is, if a client does a
PROPPATCH/PROPFIND pair, what can it expect about the property value that is
returned, as compared to the original property value it wrote. Some XML
attributes have semantics that would allow a server to return XML that was
semantically the same as the original, but was a different sequence of octets
than the original. It is also possible that the protocol specification should be
silent on this issue. An example of this ambiguity is whitespace.
