This has been discussed before.

Using POST to add collection members is straigthforward, after all, this 
was what POST was defined to do in the first place. So this 
specification just allows servers to expose support for something they 
could have done all the time.

The problem is that extending this to methods other than PUT *very* 
quickly makes it very complicated, as the namespace operations also 
require Depth header support.

BTW: why "symlinked"?
