Good question, and I'm not sure -- it depends what the consequences are 
of assuming this distinction.  It seemed like a useful distinction 
until it led to what, to me, were unexpected or undesired consequences.

Do any servers implement multiple URLs, locking and DELETE (regardless 
of whether they support the exact model of BIND)?   If so, what do 
existing implementations do?
