Hm.

It strikes me as a particularly bad idea to last-call a draft that 
builds on top of RFC2518, while, at the same time, RFC2518bis is last 
called.

Reasons:

- you will likely have to update the spec to refer to rfc2518bis instead 
anyway, and this frequently is more work than just updating a single 
reference (in particular, the stuff about ETags in section 5.3.4 is 
partly in conflict with RFC2616, and likely to be in conflict with the 
separate document about ETag handling in HTTP the IETF has decided to 
produce).

- the group of people who can give constructive feedback to CalDAV 
definitively overlaps with those who can review RFC2518bis.

Therefore I strongly suggest not to last-call anything WebDAV related 
before RFC2518bis' last call has ended.

Best regards, Julian
