Thats what _you_ are talking about ("clearly contradicts the  
specification"?!). So far I have seen no one who supports your  
(though please, there is no need to reiterate your claims, I think  
everyone understood what your position is)

BTW: I do not even agree that it is invalid to return 501 in response  
to MKCOL. For me a requirement to support MKCOL just means that the  
server knows what implementing MKCOL implies according to WebDAV, that  
it expects to receive a MKCOL request and can then respond with any  
valid HTTP code (given that WebDAV is a strict HTTP superset).
But that is just how I read the combination of the specs.
