Other Operations on Referential Members (revised)
LOCK, PROPPATCH, MOVE, COPY affect the referential member, not its target resource
Use MOVE and COPY with the Ref-Integrity header to create a strong reference at the destination
GET and PROPFIND retrieve the headers / properties of the referential member, not of its target resource
The general principle is that operations on a referential member do not affect its target. If you want to operate on the target, consult the DAV:reftarget property for the URI of the target, and then operate directly on it.
Request MUST fail if the server canít comply with the Ref-Integrity header. This includes cases where the resource is being moved from a compliant location to a non-compliant location.
