Valid annotations and calendar/addressbook "Dispaly Name"

Further questions for our effort to abandon our aging DaviCal server.

How does one set the Display Name for a collection in Cyrus?  Is this 
handled via annotations?  We can see from the sources (annotate.h, line 
57) that there's a new /vendor/cmu/cyrus-httpd branch defined, but we 
haven't been able to find a list of which annotations are available 
(besides this one,, 
which is just the /vendor/cmu/cyrus-imapd branch).

We understand that this may all just work just peachy via protocol, but 
we have a need to create an empty framework of suitable calendars & 
address books before syncing data from our old server.  We just can't 
see how to do that and ensure that the Display Name will work properly.

Any help greatly appreciated, even if it's just "Go read this source file."

Armed with this info, I would even be happy to go and update that 
previously mentioned Wiki page. :-)
