Hello,

The definition of the pre/postconditions mentions that "If not specified 
otherwise, the content for each condition's XML element is defined to be 
empty." (http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4918#section-16)

Implicitly, this seems to indicate that one can not stuff text within 
the condition element (at least for the ones defined by webdav) which is 
unfortunate as this would be very useful for interoperability testing.
Was this restriction made on purpose ?
Are there implementations that actually do stuff text within the condition ?

Thanks,

Arnaud Q

PS: I'm assuming that the same restriction applies to CalDAV/CardDAV (?...).
