This is one of a pair of specifications that extend the WebDAV
Distributed Authoring Protocol to enable clients to create new access
paths to existing resources. The two protocol extensions have very
different characteristics that make them useful for different sorts of
The present specification defines bindings, and the BIND method for
creating them. Creating a new binding to a resource indirectly creates
one or more new URIs mapped to that resource, which can then be used to
access it. Servers are required to insure the integrity of any bindings
that they allow to be created.
The related specification, RFC xxxx, defines redirect reference
resources. A redirect reference resource is a resource whose default
response is an HTTP/1.1 302 (Found) status code, redirecting the client
to a different resource, the target resource. A redirect reference
makes it possible to access the target resource indirectly, through any
URI mapped to the redirect reference resource. There are no integrity
guarantees associated with redirect reference resources.
