@dret I posted a longer form version of this to the Web Annotation 
list directly, but thought I'd recap here.

It seems the misstep here is that we're *requiring* write semantics in
 a way that HTTP does not and essentially turning `Allow` into a 
greater expectation by the client than is healthy.

In which case, @tilgovi's suggestion of switching from MUST to SHOULD 
in 4.1.1 should do the trick.

Does that sound correct, @dret? Would that allay your concerns?
