Yes, and there's really no problem with that, because RFC2518 also says 
that elements can be extended.

Now, when discussing RFC2518bis a few WG members claimed that extending 
elements with PCDATA model with new child elements is not a good idea, 
and thus RFC2518bis has changed the embedding of <error> elements. This 
may be less intrusive, but it *is* an incompatible change to RFC3253, 
thus, feedback appreciated (see, for instance, 
<http://greenbytes.de/tech/webdav/draft-ietf-webdav-rfc2518bis-15.html#rfc.section.14.24>).

Best regards, Julian
