This bug is a process objection, not a spec issue. If there's a problem with the
text or a proposal that it be removed, please change the bug summary/description
or enter a new bug and describe what the problem with the text is.

For the record, the section added is "Hosting malicious scripts executed on
client machines".  This is a security consideration that has actually come up in
the field, as reported to me by Barry Lind of Xythos a few months ago.  Some
schools deploying WebDAV servers have also deployed filters or disallowed
certain content types as they've figured out this security risk on their own.  I
can ask that Barry send his mail to the list but I think it's pretty obvious
from the text in recent drafts what Barry's proposal was.
