------- Additional Comments From julian.reschke@greenbytes.de  2006-01-24 12:14 -------
OK, after more reading and testing I have to take back my previous comment.

It seems to me history went like this:

Jason: "it's problematic to leave it to the servers which tagged-list
productions it looks at".

WG: "indeed".

However :-), the specs (both RFC2518 and RFC251bis-11) make it clear that
there's a logical "OR" between multiple lists:

"If one of the described state lists matches the state of the resource then the
request may succeed."

So it seems to me that the server indeed is free to pass the request, as long it
finds a single list production that evaluates to true. This also mean, that once
it found one evaluating to true, it really doesn't need to check the others.

So as far as I can tell, there's really nothing we can change here (except for
language), unless we really want to change the "OR" to an "AND".

Feedback appreciated.
