Actually, I think you're right: this is more appropriate as an attribute 
of the <create/> element, since create time is when it's important to 
differentiate between leaves and collections -- once a node exists, it 
exists with a certain type (leaf or collection) and you won't need to 
tell the service what kind of node you're (re-)configuring.
