Hi,
after havin a look at the spec here my naive thoughts.
If I'm overlooking something just flame me :-)
As I understand it the idea is to tell a webbrowser that an URL it got is
WebDAV or even DeltaV capable.
But this is just meta information. Do why not something simple like:

GET /documents/user42/inbox HTTP/1.1
Host: www.example.com

Response:
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Content-Type: what/ever; dav/deltav
Content-Length: xxx

The normal document for the browser ....
....

I hope you get the idea to give a hint in the header.
If what I'm proposing above would confuse a plain vanilla browser perhaps
there is another way.
This would tell the browser that it makes sense to open this URL with a
WebDAV client.
Because I think that much of the information in the dm: is redundant.
 
Chees, Edgar
