During the last conf call the 209 issues were discussed.


The logs don't make it clear who was speaking, and a lot of the arguments seem to be missing.
I understood that it was Erik Wilde who was reporting back form the London IETF meeting.
He reported back that one pushback ( from whome ? ) was that SPDY or HTTP2 allowed the
server to send back responses to documents that had not been requested by the client, and
that this could solve the 209 problem. Essentially the server could just send back a document
( but only from the same server ) that was the one requested, without the client asking for
it. This seemed interesting, but it would be nice to have a link to the passage in the RFC 
for where this is specified. 

  It seemes odd to me that this feature could be generally made available
without requiring the server to keep a lot of state about the client and what it had received.
For example if we looka at all the 303s used by the foaf ontology, every foaf term redirects
to the ontology document. The server would have to keep track of each client to know
that it had allready received the document, before sending it again. That seems odd.
