I notice that Surendra Reddy and Jim Whitehead have already spoken to this.

I will agree to it, also.

I would further like to suggest (as Roy Fielding has) that  the language of
the specification be changed to not use the term "collection" for what
WebDAV now provides.  Roy said "namespace" and that's fine with me.

I can live with a WebDAV that has no external members whatsoever better
than I can with the one that's currently defined.

And I would be pleased to be a co-author of the spec for WebDAV collections
that supported external members and ordering.
