Behavior of Direct References
All methods get passed through to target except
References allow access to resources from multiple collections. Clients can build new collections be referencing existing resources.
Direct references make it look to the client as if it is directly accessing the resource.
Want to accomplish this without interfering with anyone else’s view of the world, any other collections that reference the resource.
So we’ll pass through every operation except DELETE, MOVE
We’ve also included COPY on the list of operations not passed through, but the same rationale doesn’t apply to it.
Can we provide a different rationale, or do we want to drop it from the list?
