We think that we need to ask several vendors (RDBMS, web server, etc.) to provide us with ways and means to do HTTP uploads via HTTP 1.1 methods, namely WebDAV, via a web forms interface similar to what is available presently via HTTP 1.0.  The goals vary by project but include: multiple file uploads, more robust uploading, reduced timeout sensitivity, etc.

Is this a sensible request?  That is, would using HTTP 1.1 WebDAV features provide us with significant advantages over HTTP 1.0?

Does the WebDAV standard support uploads via web interfaces?  If so, are there examples that we could point to?

Thanks in advance for your answers.
