I'm thinking that the right choice here is to create an appendix  
describing the problem, and the recommended solution(s). While I  
agree that we shouldn't be wily-nilly giving implementation advice,  
this is a common enough problem, whose solution is sufficiently non- 
obvious, that adding appendix text makes sense.

I also think we should add a force-authenticate feature, but I think  
it makes sense to put this in a separate "DAV-fixes" draft. This  
draft can accumulate items like Force-Authenticate, and the reliable  
etags for the body and dead properties, etc. I'll take an action item  
to start creating this draft. I'll make it a private draft, so Cullen  
doesn't have to justify the creation of a new WG item :-)
