           Summary: clarification of live property behaviour vs namespace
                    ops needed
           Product: WebDAV-RFC2518-bis
           Version: -06
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: 14.  DAV Properties
        AssignedTo: joe-bugzilla@cursive.net
        ReportedBy: julian.reschke@greenbytes.de
         QAContact: w3c-dist-auth@w3.org

RFC2616's model of response headers (which are per URL) doesn't work well with
RFC2518's namespace operations. In particular, after moving resources around, a
server may have to do post-processing steps to ensure that

- lastmodified response header (and DAV:getlastmodified property) are "newer"
than for *any* resource that has been previously mapped to a given URI

- etag (and DAV:getetag property) are different from any etag previously
returned for that URI

This should either go into section 14 (as comment applicable to all properties
inherited from RFC2616), or to an appendix.
