Thanks for getting back.

A number of projects have historically used this header for read / write
storage, including tabulator and data.fm.

The values we currently work with are DAV (for WebDAV based servers
normally using verbs such as GET, PUT, DELETE to read and write), and
SPARQL for use with things like SPARQL Update.

Looking forward to hopefully adding LDP implementations to the read / write
mix :)
