with the If header
- Addition of an appendix quoting (mostly verbatim) the XML namespace 
specification for use as a normative reference by WebDAV prior to issuance 
of a W3C Recommendation for XML namespaces
- Changed all XML namespace examples to be consistent with latest XML 
namespace draft
- Adding in the correct RFC number for our requirements RFC in the 
references (yeah!)
- Modified COPY language
- Addition of a section describing the downlevel PUT/LOCK scenario that 
Sanford Barr identified
- Numerous corrections identified during the working group last call.
- Removal of the changes section.
