In other words...

LDP requires a discovery mechanism.

We've skirted this issue before, in questions about how to know
what functionality a server has implemented, and in "implementation
specific" functionality, about *how* it has been implemented.

I don't recall any decisions that deliver such discovery mechanism
(and think I remember some decisions *not* to do so), but the length
of this thread seems a clear justification for such delivery.
