Ah, so you're saying that ADDMEMBER isn't uniform?  Sorry, I wasn't
able to extract that from your other messages.  But can you please
explain your reasoning behind that belief?  From my POV, the draft
defines ADDMEMBER semantics to be a small, (seemingly) uniform
adjustment upon PUT semantics.  Can you give an example of a resource
for which ADDMEMBER wouldn't make sense?
