Format definition clarification

I need a small clarification wrt. the format definition:

It concerns the statement in bullet point 4, sub 3, if you will:


  * One groupware folder per groupware type MAY be marked as default location 
for new kolab-objects by adding a private annotation with the value "default".


By the "the value 'default'" we mean to indicate this is appended to the $type 
(i.e. "event.default", "contact.default", ...) or do we mean the literal 
string "default"?

The same or a similar ambiguity exists for the mail folders' private namespace 
values of "inbox", "drafts", etc.

I reckon we want them all to be prefixed (i.e. "mail.drafts", 

Further notes:

- We do not seem to mention the metadata location for the folder type is 

- We do not seem to refer to the "folder-test" annotation at all.

Kind regards,

Jeroen van Meeuwen
