Right, but there's only so much the spec can possibly cover. Given
that the spec is intended to be implementable over existing backends
like file systems or WebDAV servers that don't specify such
functionality, any related wording in the spec would in any case have
to be fully optional and a spec-compliant client couldn't possibly
rely on it.
