Agreed. Please stay compatible with the REPORT framework. That is,

- state what the Depth is -- sounds like 1,

- require the client to send that when not the default (which is 0 for 
REPORT),

- require the server to check the Depth.

That's necessary for

1) Consistency with other reports (less special cases), and

2) Leaving the door open for future extensions (with different depths).

Best regards, Julian
