again, working on the writeback spec.

The writeback spec will look like

   <MESSAGE>Reason for the change</MESSAGE>
   <DELETE uri="foo" />
   <FEATURE uri="bar"> ... </FEATURE>
   <FEATURE uri="baz"> ... </FEATURE>

The response document will look like this

  <FEATURE uri="spam" old_uri="bar"> ... </FEATURE>
  <FEATURE uri="eggs" old_uri="baz"> ... </FEATURE>

This FEATURE element is very similar but different than the
normal FEATURE element in that it has a new "old_uri"

Does anyone see that as a problem?  I don't, but it breaks
the guideline we talked about earlier where two XML elements
with the same tag must refer to the same thing.
