TimBL's first thinking about a Read-Write Web dates back to the time he
created the Web. He never envisaged the Web as a Read-Only medium.
That's a fallacy emerging from the illusion thrust upon Web users by Web
Browsers (starting with Mosaic!).

TimBL tried using WebDAV at a time when LDP didn't exist. Today, you can
use WebDAV or LDP to achieve his Read-Write goals.
