Yes. That's why 10.3 
(<http://greenbytes.de/tech/webdav/rfc2616.html#rfc.section.10.3>) says:

"The action required MAY be carried out by the user agent without 
interaction with the user if and only if the method used in the second 
request is GET or HEAD."

(this part needs to be fixed to say "safe method" instead of "GET or HEAD").
