The MMUSIC group is currently considering extending HTTP for conference
control (see my RTSP draft and a yet-to-be-published conference
initiation draft). We'll discuss this with the HTTP WG chair, but our
impression is that extending HTTP does not necessarily imply changing
the base draft. The advantage is conciseness and the immediate ability
to extend web servers to do the job. Your method is then a "first-class
citizen", with appropriate access control, query about existing methods,
