Julian,

1) The "commit" message sounds like a job for a header, but rather than
define one I'd suggest using a generic one for all such applications — I've
been using an "Attribute:" header for my semantic HTTP work (e.g.
Attribute: title="Picture of man biting dog").

2) For MOVE & COPY I've been using WebDAV methods (sans XML).

Thoughts?

Sam
