WebDAV SEARCH Last Call over

Hi,

the IETF Last Call for WebDAV SEARCH ended yesterday, and the following 
points were raised:

1) some editorial nits ("SHOULD not" instead of "SHOULD NOT", an XML 
namespace using a domain name not reserved for examples)

2) missing statement about safeness of SEARCH method

3) John Barone's proposal to relax the server requirement for sorting 
truncated results (see thread starting at 
<http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-dist-auth/2008JulSep/0016.html>).

I have fixed 1) and 2) in my "latest" version; here are the diffs:

-- snip --

Section 2.2., paragraph 0:
OLD:

  2.2.  The Request

NEW:

     SEARCH is a safe method; it does not have any significance other than
     executing a query and returning a query result (see [RFC2616],
     Section 9.1.1).

  2.2.  The Request


Section 5.19.9., paragraph 1:

Section 8., paragraph 1:
OLD:

     Query grammars are identified by URIs.  Applications SHOULD not
     attempt to retrieve these URIs even if they appear to be retrievable
     (for example, those that begin with "http://")

NEW:

     Query grammars are identified by URIs.  Applications SHOULD NOT
     attempt to retrieve these URIs even if they appear to be retrievable
     (for example, those that begin with "http://")

and

With respect to point 3, I'm willing to follow John's proposal to relax 
the MUST to a SHOULD. Feedback on this one appreciated, in particular if 
somebody feels strongly about it and doesn't want it to be changed.

BR, Julian
