I have just read through this entire thread, and I agree with his  
statement above, and the conclusion Julian reached in:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-dist-auth/2005OctDec/0294.html

Specifically:

* I don't think there is a compelling need to disallow Location and 207
* I don't think we need any special mechanism for handling 3xx within  
a PROPFIND
* I think it's fine if a client needs to retry a PROPFIND request if  
it receives a 3xx response

I feel a slight desire to add a 3xx response to one of the PROPFIND  
207 response examples in the text, but could live without it.

Unless others chime in, I think we're seeing rough consensus for  
removing the current 8.1.3, whose text is described in Bug 12 within  
Bugzilla:
