I am interested in your ideas on what WebDAV capabilities inside HTML  
might look like.

A Master's student at UC Santa Cruz is starting to explore this idea.  
So far we are able to grab properties from a web resource and insert  
them into an HTML page, and there are also facilities for iterating  
over all resources in a collection while grabbing properties and  
inserting them into the HTML. At present, we have only explored read- 
only scenarios.

So, what kinds of scenarios could be supported by DAV-in-HTML, and  
what kinds of capabilities would HTML need to support to make this  

Being able to write to properties seems potentially useful, though  
it's unclear whether this is better than using native HTML forms and  
POSTing data.
