------- Additional Comments From ejw@cs.ucsc.edu  2006-01-11 10:49 -------
Discussed by Jim, Julian, and Elias during the Jan. 11 teleconference.

During this call, we noted that many WebDAV servers are implemented using servlets, and hence would 
run into the delegation problem that Julian noted. The net effect of this is that these servlet-based servers 
would have a very difficult, or perhaps impossible task of implementing a response to OPTIONS *. Since 
this is a new feature for 2518bis, and since many server implementation would find it exceedingly difficult 
to implement, we recommend removing OPTIONS * language from 2518bis.

We note that Lisa is a strong proponent of this feature, and se we need to check in with her on this
