I finally paged in enough context to be able to consider this set of 
changes.
In particular, the justification, from bug text:
<http://ietf.cse.ucsc.edu:8080/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=188>

"The difference here is that with the originally proposed extension, 
the client
can tell whether the server evaluated the extension, while with the 
definition
in RCF2518bis, it can't (it has no way knowing whether the server just 
ignored
the extension, or happens to have no dead properties)."

That's not quite true, the server MUST support dead-props if it 
advertises
support for 'bis'.   Besides, a smaller fix could be for the server to 
return an
extra element saying "no-dead-props".

That said, has anybody at all implemented this?  If not, then I guess 
the change is
harmless even if the justification isn't quite true.
