Since the actions of Move, Copy, Delete are not backwardly compatible, I
don't agree with the Compliance Classes that are listed in the document.
A client will probably want to know if it's talking to an OLDER server
or a NEWER server before it takes action.  Thus there needs to be a way
for a client to tell.  Also can a server implement both (again for
backward compatibility) and thus let the client tell the server what
type of MOVE it would like (adding a DAV: 1 header or something). Maybe
DAV:1 = old RFC2518, DAV:2 = either RFC2518 w/ locks, and DAV:3 = new
RFC2518.  I am not sure how a server can be 1 & 3 with the changes to
MOVE/COPY/DELETE.
