Re: We need to start talking about group and public annotations

I have to wonder whether the PUT method is the right one to be thinking about
for annotations.

Aren't annotations *new* subordinates of the main document? If so, the
PUT method is the wrong one to be using (do we really want everyone to
be able to edit and re-write the original article?).

According to my copy of the HTTP Internet draft (5 Nov 1993 - so may be out
of date by now),
"POST and REPLY should be used for creating new documents"

(Couldn't find any information on REPLY :-(

Shouldn't we be looking at POST and REPLY???
