Re: Proposed HTTP SEARCH method update

To be clear, HTTP SEARCH is currently defined as being restricted to
WebDAV use cases, this spec updates the definition so that it's no
longer specific to WebDAV allowing SEARCH to be used in applications
that have nothing to do with WebDAV at all. One could, for instance,
send a SEARCH request carrying a Sparql Query
