OK.  Is this in lieu of listing updated RFCs in the boilerplate or in 

Is there a template for updating the registry with references?  Or is 
some simple text asking for the references to be added sufficient?

Just to clarify, which methods do you think need to have additional 
references?  PROPFIND, REPORT, and PROPPATCH because we alter the 
responses for return=minimal?  Also keep in mind the the server is 
always free to ignore the preference if it so chooses.
