Webdav collections necessarily do, but what's about get-dereferenceable 
resource, which are or may become superordinate to others (such as 
"myproject" and "documentation of myproject", or "myimage" and 
"thumbnail of myimage". In the mail starting this thread [1] I mentioned 
why i thought that it would be bad style to end get- dereferenceable 
with slash (not as bad as http://ex.org/cgi-bin/foo.pl?artid=9876876 :-).

I my need for uniformity and recommendations exaggerated and should I 
respect "slash or not" as a legitimate way of webmaster's 
individualization? Do I have to emulate old school index-pages for 
webdav access?
