I don't see any mention of headers in your document, except for
Content-MD5, (though it does cover the case where you can request a
file's GET url from the server).

I'd like that, but I'm not sure if Daniel would :) I know he really
wants to keep it simple. I see generic headers as something that are
almost a requirement to make this useable though. Otherwise it only
works for the most simple cases (eg. small XMPP servers that want to
run their own simple storage).
