   And x == GET(PUT(x)) is true for DAV servers which are usable (by  
your client, anyway) as file systems.

   I don't think it's reasonable to require that all DAV servers  
cater to file system clients.  DAV wasn't designed to be an NFS  
replacement, and is, for the most part a pretty suboptimal protocol  
for building network file servers.
