I would say tht HTTP/1.1 defines them but only within the context of
content-negotiation -- authoring is less clear. How does one upload a german
language variant of a text that alreadt exist? It's even less clear how this
affects a search (beyond the fact that certain HTTP headers are now exposed
as DAV properties). The further complication is that, as I understand it,
versioning and variants will use the same model on WEBDAV (this is based on
comments I heard at the LA IETF). We would need to have the DAV models for
both before we can address them in DASL.

HTTP 1.1 defines enough about variants that I think we need to consider
them.  Section 12 on content negotiation, together with the Accept,
Accept-Charset, Accept-Encoding, and Accept-Language make it clear that a
single resource may be available in different variants that could certainly
be relevant to search.  Do I want you to search all variants or just the
English language variants or just the French language variants for the word
