The postcondition is (from 
<http://greenbytes.de/tech/webdav/draft-ietf-webdav-bind-latest.html#rfc.section.6>):

"(DAV:new-binding): The collection MUST have a binding that maps the 
segment specified in the DAV:segment element in the request body, to the 
resource that was identified by the DAV:href element in the request body."

It doesn't say anything about reachability.

So is this just an academic question, or do you expect any interop 
problems here? This is just an edge case, I'd say...

Best regards, Julian
