Trying to think about the consequences and backward-compatibility here, I think
this should read:

   "A client MUST submit a Depth header with a value of "0", "1", or "infinity"
with a PROPFIND request.  Servers MUST support "0" and "1" depth requests on
WebDAV-compliant resources and SHOULD support "infinity" requests. In practice,
support for depth infinity requests MAY be disabled, due to the performance and
security concerns associated with this behavior. Since clients weren't required
to include the Depth header in [RFC2518], servers SHOULD treat such a request as
if a "Depth: infinity" header was included. "

I'm not sure if we concluded that the servers SHOULD or MAY support infinity
