Re: PUT,POST,PATCH of <> a ldp:Container

I think servers would be permitted to perform each of those requests.
I do not believe that any of them should be mandatory behavior.

Subject:        PUT,POST,PATCH of <> a ldp:Container

A POST of a graph that contains the triple

  <> a ldp:Container .

SHOULD/MUST create an ldp:Container


1. Does a PUT of a graph that contains that triple create an ldp:Container 

2. Does a PATCH that adds that triple turn that resource into an 
ldp:Container ?

3. Does a PATCH that removes that triple make that ldp:Container into a 
simple LDPR ?

4. if a POST were to append the posted graph to an LDPR would posting that 
triple turn
that LDPR into an LDPC?
