Last-Modified response headers

Hi,

sorry for being late in the discussion.

I just remembered that there actually may be a good reason for not
returning Last-Modified dates. This is because this response header must
work properly per URL, not per resource, and thus names pace operations
(such as MOVE) need to be taken in account (see
<http://greenbytes.de/tech/webdav/draft-reschke-webdav-namespace-vs-properties-latest.html>
for a longer summary).

That is, if you have

/a/b (with Last-Modified of 10am)

and

/a/c (with Last-Modified of 11am)

moving /a/b to /a/c *must* result in /a/c having a Last-Modified of
later than 11am (thus the underlying resource can't keep it's timestamp
here).

Maybe this is already the case (in which case I apologize for raising a
non-issue).

Best regards, Julian
