Let's say the user creates resource 'myresume.doc' and puts it into a 
collection 'http://example.org/~lisa/public/'.  Further, let's say that 
the public nature of this collection involves inherited permissions 
which make the new document publicly readable.

In step 2, the user does a BIND to also bind  'myresume.doc' into 
'http://example.org/~lisa/career/'.  This new location is a private 
folder, but let's assume that 'myresume.doc' remains publicly readable 
because of its membership in the public folder.  (This is where the 
BIND language would come in but this behavior seems consistent with 

In step 3, when the user does UNBIND and removes the binding into the 
public collection, does the document remain public?  That's the 
question for which I'm looking for additional specification
