3.2.1 Abstract Data Model


This section describes a conceptual model of possible data organization that an implementation maintains to participate in this protocol. The described organization is provided to facilitate the explanation of how the protocol behaves. This specification does not mandate that implementations adhere to this model as long as their external behavior is consistent with that described in this specification.

No new abstract data model is required, except for that in WebDAV, as specified in [RFC2518].
